    What's the sneaky wording, does it skirt around it not being tobacco being advertised?
    How do they square the circle that Article 20(5) of the TPD prohibits the advertising of electronic cigarettes ?

    Its more its a tobacco company and its money pushing non tobacco products but it can be seen as being sneaky

    Anyway, the Alfa appeared, very funky front wing, and, that paint job, I actually love it

    So, the Mclaren appears to be a low rake design this year, interesting!

    I LOVE the Alfa Livery. They (of course) won't keep the hearts, but something similar would be great.
    That wheel gap in the front wing is interesting. Seems STR has a similar thing, but less wide.

    I also tend to like the RBR reveal liveries more than the actual one.

    Very unexciting, very render, much change will occur.

    McLaren best looking car so far imo - the added blue really balances out the orange, and those side pod wings make it look very aggressive from the front... Just a shame the wrong Spaniard is driving it.

    I really like the updated Merc livery too - the different shade of silver with the more flowing blue line running down the sides and the 3-pointed star fade on the engine cover - I approve.

    That Alfa front wing is very interesting, but I wonder if it's just to throw other engineers off until they reveal the proper car in Barcelona. Sauber engineers tend to be pretty good at finding little aero quirks and loopholes.

    HAAS and Williams both look like cheap imitations of F1 cars compared to the bigger boys, really disappointing as I like both teams (and seriously hope Bob can prove the doubters wrong!).

    Hmm, was thinking it would have similar aero toys to the Alfa, appears no which is very interesting, shows they are not sharing as much as I had thought.

    Do agree that McLaren looks goo,d there was a photo someone put up they had cropped the head on shot so with those horizontal wings it actually looked like a jet fighter.

    That Ferrari looks marginal on side pod intake compared to the competitor cars. Wonder if they'll struggle with overheating at any point this year, or if they've got the cooling balanced and will be quicker??

    If Alpha keep the Valentines day paint job they win IMO, followed my McLaren.

    Also, did anyone notice the front wing on the Alpha? The rest all seem to have "first drafts" of the design regulations while Alpha have shown a slightly developed wing. The whole edge at the endplates is flattened.
    Merc meanwhile have endplates the sweep inwards while everyone else's sweep outwards. Is Merc onto something?

    McLaren showed a damn lot too during their unavailing.

    Eeek, anyone gettin a horrible sinking feeling about Williams? With missing days of testing they're starting to look a bit Marussia around the intakes.

    Didn't the first year of McHonda miss some early testing too? But yeah, not a good sign.
