F1 teams begin revealing their new cars in the flesh


The music has finally stopped on the short (though quite long-feeling) Formula One off-season chair-shuffling, and on Tuesday a few of these teams unveiled their new cars in the flesh and finally did some actual driving on the first day of the first test session in Jerez, Spain.

Mercedes, Sauber, Ferrari, Force India, Red Bull, Toro Rosso and McLaren (kind of) tweeted out pictures of their cars on Tuesday. Williams are there, too, but haven't gotten their car out on the track yet.

During the four days of the test session, Marussia and Caterham are hoping to get their cars out, as well. Only Lotus are waiting until the second test.



Poor Williams, they're lagging.


Here's their mock-up, as well as the Lotus design.
