F1 Launch Fever

Whale, it’s almost that time again... Although I’d assume this year’s Formula 1 Launch parties will be somewhat subdued in spite of the current economic situation, as some F1 teams will simply debut their new (interim) 2009 challengers at upcoming test sessions, while others will host traditional launches, with apparently the Heavy Hitters all launching in January, whilst others will wait until February? Thus, here’s what’s been speculated upon so far.

January 15
Ferrari: fiorano Test Track - launch
Toyota: Pictures made public

January 16
McLaren: Woking Factory - Launch

January 19
Renault: Portugal – Test Session
Williams: Portugal – Test Session

January 20
BMW Sauber: Valencia – Test Session

Force India
Red Bull Racing
Scuderia Toro Rosso

And perhaps a further team to be named later, nee Honda F1’s decision to pull out of Formula 1!
