The Ferrari and Sauber teams became the latest to unveil their challengers for the 2015 season, and thankfully they’ve got some colour on them. So far, the cars we have seen have favoured muted liveries, with McLaren, Mercedes and Force India going for silver based paintwork, Lotus favouring a black livery and Williams sticking with white.

Ferrari, of course, have retained their red colour for the SF15-T and they’ve said a lot of the design is retained from last year as well. The nose has been lowered as per the change in regulations, but the rest is just tighter and better sculpted, building on the 2014 design. They do pinpoint improved cooling of the power unit this year, which they hope will save them several tenths of a second.

Meanwhile, Sauber debuted their new car as well with a strikingly different blue and yellow livery. New sponsors Banco do Brasil take pride of place on the sidepods, whilst the new nose is slightly different to other designs, a little wider and more rounded. Marcus Ericsson will drive the new car when testing kicks off in Jerez on Sunday.
