Haas first to reveal new car for 2019.
Haas unveil new 2019 VF-19 car for 2019 F1 season
The computer generated image looks canny
But the reality when they made it ...
Looks good to me.
Doesn't seem to different from the previous year's effort at first glance. I'm sure the devil is in the detail.
Reminded me of the John Player Special Lotus. Not a bad look.
I imagine its going to be a strong car this year - the baby Ferrari, basically.
I quite like the livery. Very retro Lotus JPS style.

It is the same! It was last year's car with the new livery on. None of the teams actually reveal the new car until testing where they'll try to hide the new bits with camouflaging paintwork and often don't use the new livery.
Thanks for correcting my lack of knowledge. I didn't know this.
At first look I thought it was sponsored by Whyte bikes. Same logo
Did anyone watch the McLaren documentary on Amazon Prime? They barely had the "new car" by the time testing came around.
The one they put out in the "launch day" was a mule.
On a slight tangent I've just watched the latest episode of the Grand Tour which features a segment about Jim Clark. I knew he'd won the F1 championship but I didn't have a clue about his other achievements. Amazing driver. Possibly the best episode they've done so far on GT.

I like that Williams livery.
who are rokit?
is there any difference between this car, and the last?
meant to ask this last week, but the car they used for the launch at the RAC Club, was it the 2018 car - or the 19 car with 18 wings? Only seemed to be billed as a livery launch at the time...
Haven't a Scooby, just like the look of it.
I lost interest last year however I will be following it this year if only for Robert Kubica. Well done lad
I didn't realise he was back until I opened that Williams link
New mobile phone manufacturer from what I can see. Must have a decent backer to be a title sponsor for an F1 team before they have even sold anything.
Can graphic here of the toro rosso - slide view of this year & last year...
Slide view: Compare the Toro Rosso STR14 versus 2018 car
lot cleaner round the front, barge boards & brakes... can now see how the front wing is bigger & simpler... some weird sticky out bits down the middle and it looks like there's a lot going on around the air intake now... are they running the bigger rims on the tyres this year too, or is that 2021 thing still?
be interesting to see how George Russell does against him... not sure if he's still got it, or if the williams car will have it - but in F2 last year the lad looked like a future world champion so hopefully the drives will have a competitive year.
That Williams livery looks like it belongs on a back of the grid car. Probably a good fit to the rest of the car unfortunately.
