Welcome one and all to the Formula 1 2015 thread!
Has Fernando Alonso made the right move? Has Vettel? Will we lose any more teams from the back of the grid? Will Hamilton make it two in a row, or is there a surprise contender waiting to usurp the throne? Time will tell, but the easy bet is on a third title for the prince of cringe.

Without further ado, here's a list of the teams and drivers taking part this year:

alonso will flop
vettel will flop
rosberg will flop


hamilton gonna have pressure from bottas and riccardo.

that's my wishlist for this year, not predictions just because I dunno how much the mercedes gap is going end up being.

It'll be an interesting year for sure though.

It should be 'Eyebrows' Gamble' too


It can be either depending on the intended meaning at least.

I can swap it to tip of the Rosberg if that's the consensus, I came up with the title Ona whim as people were saying it had to with alonso - and who knows, it's intentionally prophetic

They're excellent, love the traffic cone on Crashtor!

Only thing that got my OCD dude was there's a couple of times in the graphics you've typo'd Constructor, on Red Bull and Ferrari.


Ah ffs. Yeah that's my bad, I was rushing and was copying/pasting from the higher placed ones to the lower ones. I just wish photoshop included a spell checker as standard, it's like having a practice amp devoid of a tuner.

Seeing as the OP is a slacker and hasnt included these details..

Confirmed car launches so far

Force India - January 21st
Williams - January 22nd
McLaren - January 29th
Ferrari - January 30th


Also Manor and Caterham are missing from the graphic. #JusticeForManorham


So, we'll be seeing a 2015 F1 car on Wednesday

It's happening!

Barely anyone had released reveal dates, and to be honest, might as well let posters fill the thread for activity. They're not confirmed to race this year, and I don't believe they'll even turn up to be honest.

I'm glad to see the engine rules have been bent a little to allow Honda to develop during the season. FIA really had a brain fart on that one.

I don't even understand the logic behind disallowing it in the first place - especially when it's their first season racing. You want a new supplier to be either successful or relatively successful, you don't want them to be a full year behind - purely from a business venture point of view it was insane and Honda was right to throw one.

^ lol, but pretty sure he'll have one of these, revealed last week

the 2015 NSX, a twin-turbo hybrid drivetrain packing around 550bhp. Power will be distributed via all four wheels using three electric motors and a mid-mounted V6. Some serious F1 tech in this car.

Funny though how it looks a lot like the drawing of that Ferrari !

It's still a down grade though. A boring Honda that was revealed 3 years ago and was completely upstaged by a Ford, or a boring McLaren named after a microwave.

At least at Ferrari he could have an F12 Berlinetta

On the subject of cars introduced last week, Ford brought back the GT. They'll be racing it in WEC, apparently.



They chose an awful color for the unveil. Should have been the classic red with white stripes.
#32
How is that a classic colour? That's Ford Performance Blue, or atleast very similar. The GT40 became synonymous with the gulf colours of powder blue (or zenith blue) and marigold (or tangerine).

It's been more or less confirmed for TUSCC and Le Mans in 2016 from what I've read. It looks great apart from the horrible rear end.

I like that blue, looks a bit like the door has been slammed in an accident from that first angle though

The Ford GT has been resurrected more times than Jesus at a kid's nativity rehearsals.

Why do you think that..?

They made the GT40. Then 30+ years later they made the GT. Now they are making this.

Also why would Jesus be resurrected at a nativity?

Just been reading there's an auction taking place this week which will get rid of all the key Marussia equipment.

Still got my fingers crossed they'll find a buyer before that, but it's looking hugely unlikely. Big big shame! One of my favourite moments of last season was the points score at Monaco.
