So the final order of rakes of all 10 new cars, from most to least, appears to be (based on released photos - although could still be deceptive):

Red Bull, Renault, Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Haas, (Racing Point), McLaren, Toro Rosso, Williams, Mercedes.

Link to driver line-ups for first pre-season test of 2019 (except for Renault):

https://www.racefans.net/2019/02/15/f1-teams-confirm-driver-line-ups-for-first-test-of-2019/

Like last winter test, some teams are splitting the morning and afternoon sessions in terms of their designated driver.

As I previously mentioned, I look foward to gofast182 setting up the new thread for the start of winter testing very soon (i.e. prior to the actual first day) - so we can include the driver line-ups and start posting our comments. ;-) :-) ;-)

Let's go Red Bull teams! Yeah! :-)

Ferrari is using a matte (red) paint like Red Bull - to save a few hundred grams! It all counts (including for assisting in the lowering of CoG)!

I didn't know there was a "performance" benefit, but I so much prefer the matte finish in cars, and that Red Ferrari paint looks better than ever to me.

Looking forward to Red Bull's.

Hopefully it will not be too long! ;-)

… funny how the wheels turn...

Red Bull has signed up another Kiwi...

A New Zealander teenage protege...

Liam Lawson!

So again we have someone in the Red Bull camp, from 'this neck of the woods' (near OZ land), to barrick for and coming up the ranks - hopefully eventually into F1 and a Red Bull team in the 2020's! Yeah!
