Glad I could contribute with the cars image, even if it did make its way over to Reddit then back again haha.

I can make a much cleaner one with chassis names if you like?

Go for it, I literally just used it because it was easy hahaha. This thread is only around for ~3-4 weeks.

So I guess the only pre-season testing video coverage we'll get is ripped clips of Ted's Notebook and some streams from private spectators?

I'm lucky enough to be able to attend week two of testing in Spain.

Looking forward to seeing how damn quick these new cars actually are.

F1 is back.

The cars are looking good, except Force India XD.

I still have mixed feeling for the new livery McLaren chooses, but on track looks great.

I hope that they have a good season this year. I don't remenber last time I watched a race where McLaren won.I also hope that Vandoorne have a great season.

Will laugh when we need a title change before the end of testing.

Open your bets, which car will cover the least laps on Monday, and which PU will die first during testing?

I'm going with Sauber and Renault PU.

New cars look good overall; hoping for something besides Mercedes domination this year.

Why did mclaren go with that trumpian orange turd design 😂

Lets see how much disappointment I can take this year. At least the Patriots won.

true F1 is back!

fuck those 2009-2016 shopping trolleys

my hopes (or the inverse of my fears)

-Renault PU not too far away from Merc. At least not further than last year please
-Pirelli tyres being more durable, not constantly overheating specifically
-Cars not being so far apart that all battles are intra-team only
-Not too many 20+ gridspots penalties for reliability issues
-Sauber not getting in the way of the rest of the field as they are lapped 30 times per race by the end of the season with their 2016 engines and low budget aero (nice livery though)
-not too many political drama over suspensions and stuff

The cars of F1 have returned, now my main concern draws to the actual racing. I'll be very interested to see what testing throws up for the cars. Oh, and that Title, Dammmnnnnnn son.

Nice to see more visual distinction between the Red Bull and Toro Rosso cars this season.

I'm colour blind and have struggled to see the difference in the past.

I'm not color blind and I have also struggled sometimes, depending on the light conditions.

So er... Hamilton has a nose piercing now.

I don't know what it is, but I cringe the fuck out whenever I see anyone wearing a nose-stud. The Mercedes looks amazing on-track though.
He's handing the weight advantage to Bottas

Hyped for the season. Hope Bottas is a consistent challenger to Hamilton.

Similarly I hope literally any other team can challenge Mercedes on a regular basis.
