Vettel will drive RB10 during the first 2 days, then Ricciardo for the last 2 days.

I guess last years awful car launch scared them back into just doing a quick photo event at the test track.

Or maybe the reason is to hide the car until the last minute...

It's said that Newey doesn't understand why there's need for launch event and he didn't like it last year either. I think they held the event only because their new title sponsor Infiniti wanted to do.

They changed the schedule. It's 08:30AM CET.

Who will be at the car while Vettel is doing interviews? He's supposed to drive the car tomorrow... Maybe they scheduled the lunch stop at that time?

I sure as hell hope so. But more importantly, I hope it's faster than anything we have seen so far  :p

Maybe cause the sport is fan based and it gives them something to enjoy, so give something back.

Sometimes they should remember without the fans, the money and lifestyle they have wouldn't exist.

Millions of forumers cried in horror, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" and then were silenced by the sound of a 1.6 litre Renault turbo engine?

You really believe other teams do that for fans? If they care about fans in the slightest some of them would have raised an issue about double points rule the other day. And I don't see the difference between posting a couple of 3D rendering pics on their websites a few days earlier calling it launch with having proper photo call in the pit lane.

AMuS reported they heard Mercedes wouldn't even have that tomorrow and I don't think you'd have any problem with them because they are not Red Bull Racing.

If his taste in helmet design is anything to go by, the car will be as ugly as the last few redbulls.

The image of the car under cover. The nose ends in a very wide low tip or wing like shape.

Ferrari and McLaren fans are concernd about their consistently underperforming teams failing to dominantly win champsionships, yet again.

 

Red Bul fans (if any exist) are not concerned with such worries.

 

Madness! But thems the facts.  :p

lol spot on, there is always a sence of fear when rb launch, personally i hope it has a nose like mclaren, because coming from rb it would be a verification of that concept, im sure Ferrari fans feel the same, over the past many years, rb has just always made the right decision, or they where clever enough to make their solutions Work, not least the sidepod ramp & tunnel solution, in the beginning they strugled a lot!, but they believed so much in the concept, they sticked to it and ended up dominating with it.

So go ahead RB make my day and feature a nose like the Mclaren :-)

Depends how you pronounce it, isn't "Arbeiten" German for "Works"?

To be honest, even though the noses work all different, I don't think they will deliver so different results in a whole package. Remember they have to gain back the downforce at the rear, so i'm more itnerested to see that, especially the area where the beam wing was last year. That plus packaging of the engine area and sidepods, for some reasons I see that as far more crucial that year than the nose, even though it's the whole package that counts obviously, but I think you understand what I'm getting at.
