      He's probably confusing the livery with the team's performance last year. Doesn't make sense to me either.

      Agreed. It looks old and faded but apparently it's an aerodynamic benefit and not about aesthetics from what I remember reading somewhere. Possibly even the 2019 thread.

      Just watched the Ferrari reveal. That kinda of show and fanfare would've been better suited for a post-season celebration, no?

      Also what's up with so much emphasis on tortellini?

      He also made a decade end stat list of all the points and finishes which some of you nerds might like...

      We've had 198 races in 25 different countries in the past ten seasons.

      Hamilton has the most pole positions with 71, followed by Vettel with 52, Rosberg with 30, Webber with 12, Bottas with 11, Leclerc with 7, Alonso with 4, Ricciardo with 3, Verstappen with 2, and Button, Huelkenberg, Maldonado & Raikkonen each with 1.

      Mercedes have the most wins amongst teams with 93, followed by Red Bull with 56, Ferrari with 28, McLaren with 18, Lotus with 2 and Williams with 1. Mercedes had 48 1-2 finishes, with Red Bull on 13, Ferrari on 5 and McLaren on 3. Mercedes were also the kings of qualifying with 61 front row lockouts, followed by Red Bull with 23, Ferrari with 9, McLaren with 4 and Williams of all teams with 1.

      Of the 20,019 points available, Mercedes picked up 5,112, Red Bull 4,168, Ferrari 4,164, McLaren 1,972, Williams 1,061, Force India 974, Lotus F1 706, Renault 514, Toro Rosso 444, Sauber 305, Haas 198, Racing Point 73, Alfa Romeo 57, Racing Point Force India 52, Marussia 2, Manor 1 and Lotus, Caterham, Virgin and HRT all on 0.

      Why would it be different? There was very little change between the RB11 and the RB12 when they added AM, and barely any since then except the size/positioning of the lettering. Find/ all: "Aston Martin" replace with "Next Sponsor"

      I'd place a bet that Ferrari's livery has changed more since 2005 than RedBull's.

      "Chinese Grand Prix postponed due to coronavirus"

      So now there's a 4 week gap in the calendar after just 3 races. And odds of a reschedule without negatively impacting other GPs is slim.

      The article that showed up as I hit the end of that one was well thought out https://www.espn.com/f1/story/_/id/2...ese-grand-prix

      Not gonna happen. Just posturing at this point to use the 'postponed' title.

      I'm thinking it's postponed until the same time next year.

      Apologies if these have been posted before but I just found them today. Fun videos, and impressive amount of production IMO. "On the road again with RBR"
