On Thursday, Ferrari and Mercedes will present their cars for the new season. The first tests for the upcoming season will start on the 26th of February.
Five teams have already presented their cars for the new Formula 1 season.
On Thursday move Mercedes and Ferrari. The Scuderia from Maranello will start as last year with the two drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen at the start. Italian media speculate whether the new car from Vettel in the coming year could go with a darker red as in the 70s at the start.
This could be connected with the presentation of a new main sponsor, which is looking for Ferrari after the departure of the Spanish bank Santander. Ferrari will present its new car on Thursday at 15 clock, however, only on the Internet to the public. On SPORT1.de and in the app, there will be the video highlights of the performance on Thursday.
Mercedes relies on proven duo
Unlike Ferrari, Mercedes will introduce its new car to journalists in Silverstone. In the Silver Arrows, the two regular pilots Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas reveal the car. The 2018er Mercedes hears the name Mercedes-AMG F1 W09 EQ Power +. It is already the ninth vehicle since Mercedes’ Formula 1 comeback.
Six days before the start of the first Formula 1 winter tests at the Circuit de Catalunya near Barcelona (26 February to 1 March), five of the ten racing teams have already presented their cars. On Thursday, the world champion team Mercedes and the great adversary Ferrari their new car. The new season begins on March 25 in Melbourne, Australia.
