This year, the Woking based team have gone back to their old days providing a bright orange paint job.
With the departure of much loved Jenson, the team line up consists of newbie, Stoffel Vandoorne
and Fernando Alonso. The Formula One team have struggled to have much success over the last few years and
hopefully the Honda-powered car can score some points, especially with a new driver behind the
The other weak, the F1 team gave us a sneak peek as to what we could expect with a CGI concept.
With its signature paint job consisting of the white, red and blue colours the Martini team are hoping
to improve on last year’s disappointing fifth place constructors after slipping from third. Lance Stroll,
18 year old Rookie from Canada joins the team alongside Felipe Massa – Who retired at the end of
the 2016 season before re-joining the team after Bottas’ departure to Mercedes.
Toro Rosso: STR12

out a lot more unlike recent years where it was perceived as an offspring to Red Bull Racing.
Carlos Sainz and Danniil Kvyat race alongside again in 2017 with the new car but regardless of where
they finish, people will definitely remember what it looks like.
Red Bull Racing: RB13
RB13 continues the recent tradition of using the dark matte blue, the Milton Keynes team are hoping
the RB13 isn’t unlucky with their disturbing launch video, filled with superstations and bad omens.
The catchphrase, unlucky for some, is heavily featured but hopefully Australian Daniel Riccardo and
Max Vestappen can pull closer to the Mercedes after finishing 2nd in the Constructors last year but
still 300 points behind the top spot.
The launch of Haas new machine came on Sunday afternoon, the last of the lot to be revealed in
Barcelona. Last year the team finished in an impressive eighth place during their debut year. Haas
have gone for a sleek grey, red and black outfit as well as the shark fin engine cover as seen on most
of the other cars. Hopefully the American team have another great season with Esteban Gutierrez
and ex-Renault driver, Kevin Magnussen in the cockpit.
That’s all the cars, now it’s time to see how they perform in testing when they hit the track on
