Smoke and Mirrors

Once again it’s almost time for Formula 1’s new car launches… And these gala events usually quickly turn into a repetitive series of “Dog & Pony” shows…

Nevertheless these daily touting's of the media’s paparazzi give hope to each team’s upcoming season…

I do enjoy these launches if only from a remote locale via the internet as it’s usually the only chance I get to see the new cars holding still…

Many F1 teams will be anxiously awaiting the launch of Red Bull and its sister’s team Scuderia Toro Rosso to see how closely the two chassis resemble each other in the still unresolved thorny issue of chassis cloning…

Here’s what I’ve gleamed so far regarding roll-out with Toyota winning the race to launch first...

Dates:
Jan. 12: Toyota; Jan. 14: Ferrari; Jan. 15: McLaren; Jan. 16: BMW-Sauber; Jan. 24: Renault; Jan. 25: Honda; Jan. 26: Red Bull; Feb. 2: Williams

Interestingly that just leaves the three supposed “minoe’s” to find launch dates. Spyker is most likely awaiting delivery of their new customer Ferrari engines while the drama builds over the launches of Scuderia Toro Roso and Super Aguri…
