How can you watch F1 car launches?
Fans can watch the car launches on team's social media pages and YouTube, with some coverage likely on ESPN.
Most teams will also live stream their launches on their official websites. Keep an eye out for links and announcements on their platforms, but don't fret if you miss one; we'll have all the juicy details and insights right here!
Will cars look the same on track as they do at launch?
It is highly unlikely that the cars you see at the launches will be completely mirrored on the Bahrain Grand Prix grid.
While the overall design and livery will remain the same, teams are notorious for playing their cards close to their chests. This secrecy allows them to gain a huge advantage over their rivals, who can only analyse their cars once they're out in the open.
So, expect subtle (or not so subtle) upgrades and modifications, especially in key aerodynamic elements such as rear wings and sidepods.
These secret weapons will only be unleashed once the lights go out in Bahrain, adding an extra layer of intrigue to the opening race.
