The Formula 1 season gets underway in Barcelona with the first winter test from February 23 to 25. In those three days, the teams see for the first time from each other what exactly they have done and the ratio can be looked at somewhat. However, we won't see those real ratios until Bahrain in qualifying for the first race.
Aston Martin comes with the first date
Before the winter test, however, there is already a chance to see what the new cars look like. While teams won't be giving away the big secrets to the competition this early, it's a great opportunity to show fans what the new cars will look like. After all, with the new regulations, the cars will have a completely different look in 2022.
Aston Martin is the first team to have a fixed date for the first car launch and will also present the car earlier than Ferrari. The Italian team has already given a guideline. The team of Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc will present the car between February 16 and 18, the official day has not yet been announced.
