    Thought I'd create a topic on the new 2016 cars. Obviously there is a Red Bull/ TAG Heuer link, but plenty of people here with a good interest in F1 in general.

    Here is the new McLaren (complete with Richard Mille branding)

    I think the Williams has the best livery out of those, although it's more of an evolution of the 2015 car.

    The McLaren does not look good in black either, it needs to find a more bright colour. I had my fingers crossed it would be red & white like their golden years with Senna!

    I agree; however I think the Martini livery is what makes it special.

    Very true. The white is striking and the subtle Martini stripe running along the body compliments it perfectly.

    Reminds me of the Brawn GP livery, white base colour with a small florescent yellow highlighting the edges of the car. Loved that design!

    The Martini and Gulf liveries - perhaps also the Jagermiester - would look fantastic on just any racing car, F1 or other.

    Yes, Gulf & Martini are my favorites by far.

    Unfortunately, alcohol sponsorship is going the same way as tobacco sponsorship.
    And there's not many companies willing to go the 'Bitten 'n' Hisses' or 'Buzz 'n' Hornets' route (cool livery too) anymore.

    Will be good to see the new Mercedes in the flesh at testing next week. Of the full reveals so far, I'm liking the subtle changes on the Ferrari.

    Hard to know what to make of what we've seen so far:
    - The Renault is the 2015 car in "launch livery", which will be changed before the first race
    - The Red Bull is a 2015 car in 2016 livery
    - The Williams nose will change entirely before the first race

    Yep, the Renault in particular is expected to change significantly.
    Would love to think that the turquoise rims will stay on the Mercedes.
    Testing tomorrow!!

    And to show how far ahead of the game Mercedes is, their car is basically what will race in Melbourne...no launch spec, no 2015 car dressed up in new clothes..
