As I am finally happy to spend some free time with my son, F1 has caught our attention again with the forthcoming start of the new season. Most teams have already presented their new cars and although the optical changes to the bodyworks are difficult to spot, there are subtle details to be noticed in the liveries of most cars. So Ferrari has designed the font of the driver numbers to resemble that of the famous 312T4, while Mercedes has put a splash of red on the air intake and the wings due to the arrival of a new sponsor. McLaren sticks with the traditional orange colour, but the finish of the livery is matte now like Ferrari’s since last season and trendsetter’s Red Bull. Red Bull stick with the same livery used since 2018, but both the trademark and the logo seem to be slightly more highlighted as before. Haas has dumped the black and gold livery of former title sponsor and switched back to their original colours white, grey, red and black resulting in the most beautiful iteration of the Haas liveries as far as I am concerned. The most stunning new livery however has been revealed at the presentation of the former Toro Rosso now rebranded as AlphaTauri.

On February, 28th season 2 of the Netflix series Formula 1 Drive To Survive which has been produced in 2019 will debut, just two weeks before the first Grand Prix of the 2020 season. So it was about time to start watching season 1, and after the first two episodes I am excited to relive the rest of the races of the 2018 season from the very attractive behind-the-scenes point of vue shown in the series. Further, there will be two PreSeason Testing sessions at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in the coming weeks.
