The Slew Of New F1 Liveries Is Equal Parts Boring And Exciting

Pre-season testing took place earlier today for the 2018 Formula 1 teams, with Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya hosting the new field of cars as they performed their first viewable shakedowns. In terms of times by day’s end, Red Bull’s Ricciardo left with the fastest recorded lap (1:20.179) ahead of Bottas in the Mercedes W09 and Raikkonen in the Ferrari SF71H. The Red Bull RB14, besides the quickest, was also the only car to complete more than 100 testing laps on the cold and then damp day in southern Spain. In other news, Alonso had positive things to say about his McLaren MCL33 with the new Renault power unit, claiming “huge potential.” Then again, that’s probably something one would say regardless of how much truth it carried at this point in the season.

However, a wet day at the beginning of official testing doesn’t decide the finishing order of the actual races to come, so rather than trying to overanalyze broken wheel nuts or read too far into snippets of conversation, let’s look at some of the more noteworthy cars in a literal sense instead. Alfa’s pseudo-return to the sport (recall they have paired up with Sauber as a “strategic, commercial, and technological” partner) is bringing in some nostalgia to the grid, and some of the the other liveries will also reflect the past for this season of the most technologically advanced racing in the world.
