Force India, for the second year in a row, are the first to have a 2015 launch (January 21st) although it's not clear whether its just a livery launch or a full car launch!

Quite a few of the new cars are being launched around the 29th of January ahead of Jerez.

Surprised to see all the official testing in Spain despite complaints it's too cold to be useful.

Hockenheim will be hosting this year's German Grand Prix as the Nurburgring doesn't have a contact this year following them alternating each year so Nurburgring will probably host the 2016 German Grand Prix.

Marussia boss John Booth is hopeful the team can put a rescue deal in time for them to take part in the first race of the season


http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/formula1/30881741



Do people think Marussia will be on the grid in Australia or are they just clutching on straws?

I think they are clutching at thin air these days but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

This year Australian, Malaysian, China, Japan and Russia Grand Prix's will be taking place a hour earlier following recommendations made after Jules Bianchi's crash in October. They've been moved forward to avoid the races finishing at dusk or sunset.

Very good idea in my opinion after what happened in Japan.

What do other people think?

After an F1 season the gap seems AGES but only 2 months away now till it starts again! biggrin.gif

Seeing only 9 teams is sad tho sad.gif keeping a keen eye on the Toro Rosso newbies I think they could spring a few suprises!

Who's everyone's bet for the title then? Seems hard to look outside of Mercedes but it will be as close as it was last season?!

Australia's new time was shit as it meant the sun was setting at the end of the race right into the eyes of the drivers.

It was only just that more European viewers would watch. That's way it was moved. To be honest. Move it back to 4am UK time for people who are prepared to wake up/stay up to watch the race. I enjoyed waking up at that time to catch the race. What about you?


Williams have become the first team to reveal their 2015 car:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/formula1/30915475

I really hope Williams can win a race this season. I'm sure that they will providing their car is as competitive as last year's.


My bet for the title is:
Lewis Hamilton


My 2015 F1 Predictions:


Constructor's Championship: Mercedes
Best Rookie: Max Verstappen
Most Improved Team: McLaren
Underachiever Team: Sauber again
Breakthrough Driver: Danil Kyvat
Worst Driver: Pastor Maldonado/ Marcus Ericsson.

Yes, I've seen the new Force India livery. Very nice indeed.

Hopefully Force India will be to maintain their form throughout the season instead of peaking early like last year.

Past couple of years Force India have had the best livery for me. Especially when they made the switch to the black!

Lotus have revealed the first images of their Mercedes-powered E23 car:

http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/117467


Again similar livery to previous years.

They say that they hope to be back in the hunt for podiums.

In my opinion, I can't see them challenging for podiums this season.

I echo what Silas says in that Force India have got a beautiful livery yet again. They have had my favourite livery for years now and while this is less green and orange which I loved and more McLaren silver, it's still beautiful and maintains their identity with the orange strips.

Force India have pulled out of the first pre-season test because of the limited learning opportunities.
