Alfa Romeo Sauber unveiled their new partnership livery in December – on an old car

Formula 1 teams are putting the final touches to their new cars before the first race in Australia on 25 March.

And this year they will all have a different look, as ‘halo’ cockpit protection becomes a requirement.

The teams kick-off pre-season testing at Barcelona in Spain on 26 February before returning for a second session in March.

There will be live BBC Sport text commentary on all eight days of the two tests.
