    1. I hope they add more color, and less of black!

    2. Let’s hope the car will be a winner

    3. Hopefully F.I will bring more green & orange,like 2014!I would bet that Williams will announce their car at 23 February as well😱😱.

      1. Yeah, I still think that was a better livery. The green and orange(actually saffron) came from the Indian flag.

        1. It was more spectacular!!Orange & green are colours that are missing now,so it would be nice to bring them back.Who didn’t like,for instance,the black & orange Arrows??Or the green Jaguar?Even Caterham’s liveries were nice.F1 teams need to work on their liveries,cause in the last couple of years,they are really dull & most teams use the same colours…

    4. I’m glad that proper launches are back, since 2012 or 2013 the majority of launches have taken place at the first pre season test, nice to see the first three teams announce that they’re launching before the first test, got to be good for sponsorship chances right?

      1. This isnt a proper launch, the teams will be revealing their liveries and new cars at circuits during testing. The launches earlier where in hotels or auditoriums around the tracks with much more fanfare than they are today. I think only Ferrari does that today.

    5. I thought the height of force Indiahhhh’s livery was 2014
