2019 Formula One


#43

in his mid-50s and bitching about everything

we need to invite him on here, he will fit right in :+1:


#44

Irvine has never been short of a myopic and ill informed opinion.


#45

I think that goes for most ex drivers. It is difficult to be objective when a massive ego gets in the way.


#46

Sauber is gone, long live Alfa Romeo… @IanW


#47

Makes them the top team in the paddock, alphabetically at least!


#48

Last year was an over achieving year (we were so bad in 2017 that it required a massive improvement to do what we did in 2018) and it looks like it persuaded Alfa to get more involved.

Good for F1 and good for the old Sauber team.


#49

Are they retaining the “current” management structure ?


#50

As far as I know.

If there are going to be changes (and why should there be if the team can deliver another step up the grid in 2019) then I expect that this will happen over the medium term.


#51

Happy to see some more stablity at Sauber after the post-Peter years, and good to have Alfa back as a marquee … but I’ll miss the Sauber name on the grid :-/

Hopefully we’ll see a pretty car with an even prettier livery

ATB, Ian!


#52

HAAS livery launch render…


#53

It’s a good looking car


#54

Reminds me of JPS Lotus livery (Senna driving in this pic)


#55

Or the more recent Kimi/Grosjean lotus

Meanwhile


#56

Williams livery painted by a 12 y.o…

The new boss, same as the old boss…


#57

Haas…zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…


#58

The Haas livery still looks light years better than the Red Bull one. That’s seriously dull.


#59

Happy that Williams have a sponsor on there, but that’s really not a pretty colour scheme

Let’s hope it goes well


#60

The Toro Rosso scheme was OK last year but to run with the same design again seems like a marketing opportunity lost.


#61

I agree, it’s just meh…


#62

Bland has become a style.
