      Looks like Vettel knows his days in red are numbered. After being out driven by Leclerc in 2019 it would take a big turnaround to change the inevitable. Vettel inquired about going home to Red Bull already, even before the season started, so maybe the writing is on the wall and Ferrari will look for someone to take the seat next to Leclerc:

      Vettel asked for a return to Red Bull: "We can't afford that"

      Sebastian Vettel has a lot to prove in 2020. The German was defeated in 2019 by his young teammate Charles Leclerc and will have to do everything in his power to maintain a place at the top of Formula 1.

      "Sebastian wanted to see if a return in 2021 is possible, but that is impossible for us," Marko tells Auto Bild.

      McLaren reveals footage of 2020 F1 car fire-up


      McLaren has completed a successful fire-up of its 2020 Formula 1 car at its Woking factory.
      The Renault-powered MCL35 was successfully fired up in front of staff, including CEO Zak Brown and team principal Andreas Seidl, on Wednesday.

      Footage, which deliberately did not reveal any details about the new F1 design, was posted on the team's Twitter account.


      "Together with our colleagues from Renault, we successfully fired up the new car today for the first time. As it is every year, this is an important milestone," said Seidl.

      "We have plenty of hard work ahead of us over the coming weeks, but it's great to see the commitment inside the team and everything going to plan as we continue to prepare for car launch and the first test."

      McLaren will launch its new car at its Woking factory on February 13, with its target for the season ahead being to close the gap to the top three teams.

      This year will be the last with Renault engines, with McLaren have already concluded a long-term deal to switch to Mercedes customer power units from the start of 2021.

      The team is sticking with drivers Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris, who both impressed during their first seasons with the team last year.

      Ferrari also fires up 2020 challenger
      Ferrari has also fired up its new power unit in its 2020 car at its base in Maranello today, as it embarks on a season in which it aims to toppled Mercedes...

      ESPN's new F1 podcast is garbage. Never heard of such a poorly record podcast in my life, sounded like a 48kbps quality. Pretty sad from a major organization like ESPN. /rant

      Wow, my mistake. I woke up to that Instagram update on my tablet, figured it was a early tease/leak.

      I wouldn't be surprised if the livery is similar though.

      Extremely underwhelming from Ferrari. I preferred the driver number fonts on the 2019 car. :/

      The mid-field are going to be the lookers of the first few races. I hope Racingpointforceindiaastonmartinracing keeps the pink theme and Williams unveils something nice.

      The ceremony in general. The music, the acrobats and their costumes... really bizarre. Wasn't inspiring...
