Default F1 Season 2015

The silly season is starting off early. Big news is that RBR is announcing that Vettel will be leaving at the end of the season.

http://adamcooperf1.com/2014/10/04/v...ands-rbr-seat/

He will be replaced by Daniil Kvyat. Don't know who's seat he's taking at Ferrari, but rumor has it that ALO/VET and ALO/HAM trades were turned down by RBR and Merc respectively.

Crazy news. Kinda surprised, but I was also surprised when Hamilton announced for Mercedes.

Alonso is likely going back to McLaren now that they're getting Honda motors and Button will retire.

I'm still figuring out how Hulkenberg is going to get a seat at Ferrari. Maybe 2016 when Kimi retires again?

Force India unveiled their car. Looks like a mean Merc

Look sharp with the silver... But I kinda miss the Indian national colors on their car. Either way, looking forward to seeing the new chassis.

The front wing is looking crazy too.

Williams also released a pic of their new car.

And the McLaren (now with more Honda)



Livery looks a lot like the new Force India.

I'm liking the new long noses. Much better looking than recent years past.

Red Bull's livery is certainly different this year.



Edit: probably a testing camo livery

Surprising news that Alonso will be forced to sit out the Australian GP due to concussion symptoms. Magnussen will drive in his place.
