The 2022 Formula 1 season is the most anticipated in recent memory. Not just because of the way 2021 has gone, with Max Verstappen propelling Lewis Hamilton to the title on the very last lap, but because of the huge rule changes that are coming into effect.
The new cars are, indeed (and in theory), simpler in appearance, with less of the ugly aerodynamic equipment that spoiled the aesthetic appeal of the previous generation of cars.
The end results will be intriguing. Will Mercedes steal a step from everyone? Will Ferrari rise to the top and challenge for the championship? Or will another team surprise from midfield?
With the first pre-season test starting on Wednesday February 23 in Catalonia, the F1 launch season is in full swing. We’ve got all the latest cars that have been launched so far and details on which ones are yet to come.
Red Bull RB18
Red Bull, which won the drivers’ title with Verstappen last season, unveiled its car at its headquarters in Milton Keynes on February 9. The livery is predictable, as you’d expect from Red Bull, with a new title sponsor in Oracle and ‘Red Bull’ on the rear wing, unlike Honda who pulled out as partner and engine supplier.
