    I realise it's all about safety, but I've got to admit that the Merc and Ferrari have underwhelmed in how well they've 'disguised' the halo in their colour scheme and designs

    i'll be brutally honest... i'm not big on orange, so that's not really doing much for me.

    in saying that, i just want the ruddy thing to be fast this year!

    Not sure of the colour & they haven't even tried to hide the halo but if they can challenge for points or even a podium I dint think any one will care what it looks like.

    Ha... i'm the reverse, I am big on orange and I'm digging this! they're still screaming out for a title sponsor, but hopefully (based on Zak Brown's recent comments) there's something coming on that front.

    It could just be the angle of the pics, but the halo doesn't stand out as much as I'd expected it would... apart from on the Ferrari where it looks chunky as hell. It also doesn't help that unlike everyone else, the Scuderia have chose to draw attention to it even more by slapping another prancing horse badge on it - and i say this a Ferrari fan since boyhood :rolleyes:

    I would guess it's for the future then next year a possible promotion to full reserve driver in 2019 with I guess a hope he shows lots of promise & they can get him racing in 2020.

    In my defence I was about to head out to work & wanted to put a quick post in about the start of testing but still opps.

    i've had sporadic access today (bloody work), but i've glanced at the live testing when i could.

    good day for the Renault powered cars... lots of laps.
    shame about the Mclaren wheel nut issue. last thing they needed on day 1 lol, but.. it happens. The car is driving ok from what i've read.
    it did make me laugh when i first looked at the live updates and it said something like:- Mclaren Renault 6 laps, Torro Rosso Honda 50 laps :D

    i need to watch the test report later methinks

    i think having 2 drivers under the age of 25.. and unable to do sponsorship stuff with them because of it was probably the final nail in that deal

    that makes me laugh.. for 4 years of Red Bull domination, they were the team that were hitting the 'vitto' button to changes that the other teams wanted.

    Yep negotiations can get complicated, they probably decided this was the best option.

    Is he really that out of touch if RB was in the Mercedes position they would be doing exactly the same thing & Ferrari will always put Ferrari first if they saw a benafit in having a 2 stroke engine they would try & get it approved :p
