Post

From Andrew Benson’s article:

Seidl said he was happy with both drivers and he saw "no reason" to change them in the future.
While Norris is on a long-term deal with McLaren, Sainz said he was keen to extend his contract beyond the end of 2020.
"It is not a secret I am very happy here in McLaren and there have been some things going on in the background," he said. "We have started to talk already, but at the same time we take it easy as there is no rush at all."

Didn’t know Lando was on a long term deal, I thought he got extended for just 2020.
Q: (Stefano Mancini – La Stampa) Kimi, will you help Vettel to win his championship this year?
Kimi Raikkonen: I can only drive one car, obviously.

According to McLaren's Facebook post on the 13th, the MCL35 will be on track possibly tomorow for a filming day. They said 'in a couple of days'. If not Saturday, then maybe Sunday. Can't wait to see it in action!

One sponsor I can’t say I noticed was FxPro located anywhere on the car. I could be wrong and it my eyes deceiving me.

However late last year they extended their deal with branding to be on the front wing and cockpit surrounding albeit this is to be from Australia onwards. Wonder if that means the BAT different brands will be on the front wing end plates instead.

It really makes me wonder if the price really spiked so high for this season that FxPro became so much smaller for the same money, or they paid less for this season, since they have almost disappeared from the car.

I am still missing Unilever, while Arrow and Dell also seem to be smaller then they were. I guess Australia will be the final indicator how much exposure and branding companies have.
If i would get the money to start my own F1 team, i would revive Arrows

Just depends how you see it. FxPro was only even see from the front angle last season now this season every onboard you’ll see their logo, Arrow still have a similar sized logo and are still on the engine cover plus the nose cone so no change there. Dell have moved but are in a prime spot too so don’t see an issue with that?

The first report I came across stated Tuesday would be the shakedown. But since then, Saturday or Sunday has been suggested, we’ll see how it goes.
