    That looks pretty amazing but I'll run the risk of upsetting stefa and suggest a bit of white (green/red/white tricolore?) somewhere to break it up slightly, and the gold wheels would be good too. But even as it stands, it looks the business!

    +1! That looks killer! Love the kind of ghosted horse on the side. I would think it would be cool if Ferrari allowed its' fans to submit livery ideas and it gets voted on. I know it would never happen, but it would be a fun way to engage the fans a bit more.

    Thanks for compiling the list.

    I'm looking forward to seeing all the new cars, what idea the teams will have.

    As for Ferrari's livery, I'm hoping we will see more Red this time. It seems to me that our car has became less red every season

    Ferrari might go all red and do away with the white space and white accents.

    From grandprix24/7 - sounds like Haas will use a filming day right before testing at Barcelona like last year. So could be on the 26 Feb. maybe.
    Steiner also revealed the team is undecided on a launch date for the VF-16's predecessor, with the team planning a filming day at the Barcelona circuit before testing begins on February 27. Haas did the same last year, utilising the rule allowing teams two 100km promotional filming events over the season, to complete installation laps at the Barcelona circuit before testing began.

    Haas then launched the VF-16 digitally on the morning of the first test before its official unveiling in the pit lane shortly before the lights went green. The team is leaning towards a similar launch plan this year but is yet to finalise plans.
    Forza Ferrari !

    Thanks, updated the list.

    Also, looks like Manor may still have a chance of being on the list. There is reported to be an offer, but it has to be accepted by 20 Jan., the bidder believes, in order to meet car production & testing goals.

    Cheers, let's hope Manor makes it as well.

    I doubt they will go with an orange color. Orange just doesn't look intimidating. Some orange accents sure, but dominantly orange? Nah.
