Alfa Sauber have revealed a teaser image of the C42. This is it folk, a 1st look at a proper 2022 F1 Car

is it me or does it look very bulbous around the halo mounting point? saying that, outlets have shruk / virtually non existent as a result of the re-introduction of the shark gills last seen in 2008

also dont know if it is the camera angle but the rear wing looks Mahoosive

Apparently the Red Bull may already be as fast as last year's car.

Hardly be a surprise. People in f1 are geniuses they often find loopholes and time

Theo Pouchaire in the Alfa (I know he’s probs not official reserve)

Last time it had f1 in the title like that was 2000 apparently, could be wrong as I did see this on twitter.

Re Haas when are they launching?

Leapfrogging everyone except perhaps haas.

Chances are all the teams will be using dummy /mules and we won't see the proper spec cars till Bahrain (test or race)
McLaren have already said that they’ll be bringing upgrades to race one.

More and more I just consider the car launch events to be revealing the livery rather than the car.

Yea I consider them a livery reveal, anything exciting will be out of view, but I think it'll be exciting just seeing some more perspectives of the new generation of cars.

I suppose the other thing with F1 moving to an era where the venturi tunnels are going to be the focus of everyone efforts rather then barge boards we may not really see lots of the stuff which really differentiates the cars anyway.

That’s a good point. The first team to have their car lifted by a crane will be cursing I’m sure.

Haas have confirmed it's a livery reveal on a vf22 mule. Rumour has it it will be predominantly blue with red as the 2ndary colour.

Re development, its the floor as a whole rather than the tunnels. Also dont be too surprised to see cars using modified cape designs throughout the season
