2010 Mercedes, Renault, Sauber, Toro Rosso, and Williams Cars Emerge

We’ve formally seen the Ferrari F10 and McLaren MP4-25, and now we get to see five more 2010 challengers. Here they are.

Mercedes W01
Nico Rosberg
Michael Schumacher

What can I say about the Mercedes? Well, the livery certainly looks better on the Mercedes chassis than it did on the Brawn last week, and I find myself liking the livery that little bit more now that I see it in the sun. The W01 definitely looks like a great car, and I love the sidepods. The crook in the nose cone is also pretty nice.

Renault R30
Robert Kubica
Vitaly Petrov

Beautiful car! Formula One has been sorely missing a yellow car since the demise of Jordan. I didn’t watch F1 back when Renault used to be exclusively black and yellow, but I’m well aware of those times and I’ve seen many pictures. This is just a really beautiful car, and it is exactly what the fans wanted from Renault.

Sauber C20
Pedro de la Rosa
Kamui Kobayashi

I was hoping for something… More? There are only two sponsors on the car (you have to look really hard to find them, especially since on cannot be seen in this picture) and the car itself looks questionable to me. It looks too long, too straight. It’s like a drag racer or something. Overall, I don’t know what to think of this car, but for Peter Sauber’s sake I hope that it does well.

Toro Rosso STR05
Jaime Alguersuari
Sebastien Buemi

I didn’t expect Toro Rosso to come out with a beauty, but they did just that with the STR05. The new Toro Rosso is very sleek and slender and looks deceptively fast. I don’t doubt that this is going to be a good car at all! The only question marks are hanging over Alguersuari and Buemi, two drivers who I still do not have much faith in.

Williams FW32
Nico Hulkenburg
Rubens Barrichello

I’m in love. The 2010 Williams FW32 is a really wonderful looking car! The team is very optimistic about their 2010 challenger, and why shouldn’t they be? It looks absolutely beautiful and oozes a sense of raw power and speed. It also sounds pretty awesome too. Check out this video..

Preseason testing kicks off today, but it is pointless to examine the lap times and try to judge how well each car performs, since they are not even doing race simulations yet.

But just the fact that preseason testing has finally started says something. F1 2010 is just around the corner, and I can hardly wait!
