Binotto said, "The reason why we are anticipating the launch and the unveiling and then moving on is we must do some dyno homologations before going to Barcelona,"

What doe this actually mean then and is it good or bad news for Ferrari?

I think it is good decision by Ferrari. Top speed is overrated in general and especially in F1.

Regarding livery updates /changes, I expect these.

Mercedes - Most likely the same base livery with an updated minor flow neon design like last year.
Ferrari - Red but either with Black or White on the edges.
Red Bull - The same.
McLaren - Papaya Orange with hints of Black.
Racing Point - Pink but with shades of Gay & Orange (as per source's claim of seeing leaked images).
AlphaTauri - Black & White.
Renault - Yellow with more of Black.
Alfa Romeo - White with Red
Haas - Back to the Gray base with Red & White
Williams - White Base with better design of Blue.

I'm really hoping Ferrari get rid of the matt look for this year. Ferrari's should be shiny.

There is some red on it!

I think Merc of 2017/18 had the nicest liveries but this year/last year aren’t too bad either.

Disappointed it's not the fully black render that's been doing the rounds.

Cheers for the link, the CEO of Ineos looks to be a good 2 inches taller than Toto. 8O

So we have the livery launch which includes an important new sponsor, the sponsor talks about the importance of teamwork which enables teams such as Mercedes to achieve such incredible things, then a journalist, sounded Italian, basically asks when is something going to be done to stop Mercedes winning because it's killing the sport, very classy, not.

Good on Toto to give actual viewing figures and multi media exposure to show the journalist was basically talking rubbish.

Agreed, mainly yellow with black accents would be much better.

Really surprised none of the hardened Ferrari fans have not been talking about this:

Isn’t that the same front wing concept that set them back last season?

Does look like it but apparently the aerodynamics are very different being 'central' you do wonder if it is a bit of "the emperors clothes" disguise, though I'm sure someone will explain it.

Yeah hopefully!

I’ve since read that Ferrari have said they’ve gone for an extreme concept on trying to create as much downforce as possible

I doubt we'll see real front wings at launch, those are too valuable to show before testing.

They revealed the car yesterday at Silverstone I believe and did laps on it with both Bottas and Hamilton, they don't do special media launches although they had a livery presentation on Monday at the behest of new sponsor Ineous.
