Welcome one and all to the Formula 1 Class of 2020. For the coming season it’s all about evolution rather than revolution, says F1 (the big changes of course are coming in 2021). So, for this year the cars will look and act remarkably similar to before – with the only real changes being less metal in the front wings to reduce punctures and a return to the good old chequered flag rather than that stupid light panel we had to endure last year.
Also much like last year, Haas is the first team to unveil its brand-new colours. Well, we say new, the American outfit is actually throwing it back to the white, black and red it used in 2016 and 2018. Last season’s black and gold livery was incredibly cool, of course, but presumably that came about because of the team’s former title-sponsor. The less said about this, the better.
Haas’ 2019 season was a bit of a nightmare all told too, with the team finishing above only Williams in the Constructors’ championship – although no doubt that’ll make excellent viewing for all of us when the new series of Drive to Survive is released on Netflix. Sorry Guenther.
Both Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen will return for the 2020 season, with testing beginning in Barcelona on February 19 and the first race in Melbourne on March 15. So, make sure you head back to this very page over the next couple of weeks and we’ll bring you nine other pictures of F1 cars in pretty colours.
Excited for the season ahead, race fans?
