The 2024 Formula One season will start next week with the first official test of the year. Well, as we have learned, teams no longer show their real 2024 Formula One Cars until that first outing. However, that does not stop teams from ‘unveiling’ their new race machines. These unveils are in essence to show off the liveries that the respective cars will carry.

Mercedes-AMG W15

2024 Formula One Cars

Eight time world champions Mercedes-AMG have not enjoyed success of late. The team’s latest challenger, called the W15 is a complete departure from its predecessor’s.

“We’re changing the concept,” team principal Toto Wolff noted recently. “We’re completely moving away from how we laid out the chassis, the weight distribution, the airflow. Literally there’s almost every component being changed because only by doing that, I think we have a chance. We could get it wrong also. So between not gaining what we expect, to catching up and making a big step, and competing at the front, anything is possible.”

The team’s driver line-up remains unchanged with seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton leading the charge. He will be backed up by teammate George Russell.

McLaren MCL38

2024 Formula One Cars

McLaren had a very strong finish to its 2023 campaign. The team seems to have adopted an evolutionary approach to its new car called the MCL38.

Team principal Andrea Stella said: “There are a number of innovations on the car, but not all the areas we want to address have been completed for our launch-spec car. Those areas now become the focus of our in-season development, which is already in progress.”

British driver Lando Norris will resume driving duties for the team as will impressive Aussie Oscar Piastri.

Ferrari SF-24

The Scuderia posed the only challenge to the dominant Red Bulls last year. The red cars took many pole positions in the hands of Charles Leclerc and the only non-RBR win of 2023 went to Carlos Sainz. Team principal Fred Vasseur said: “This year, we must start off where we left off at the end of last season, when we were consistent frontrunners, with a view to constantly improving in all areas.”

Williams FW46

2024 Formula One Cars

The British team showed signs of pure speed last year, particularly as low-downforce tracks. But the FW45 did struggle at other circuits. The team retains the driving services of Alex Albon and American Logan Sargeant. Albon said of his new steed: “This year especially, we’ve sacrificed a little bit of development time on the FW45 to focus on the FW46, shorten the amount of upgrades we had on the car, to make sure that we tried to attack this car a little bit more aggressively and really start to change the DNA of the car. That’s the plan. Let’s see if it happens.”

Alpine A524

Alpine A524

Alpine F1 Team retain the services of French duo Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly. The pair will be driving the Alpine A524 in this year’s championship.

Alpine technical director Matt Harman said, “We maxed out the potential on the A523 and so the A524 is completely new from front to back. This project began as early as the end of the 2022 season. We started doing some experiments with the car at races across 2023.”

Visa Cash App RB VCARB 01


It took a moment for us to work out as well, but this is the team that was formerly AlphaTauri, and Toro Rosso before that. The new colours are those of the team’s main sponsors, though they do remind us of the older Toro Rosso appearance. Danny Ricciardo and Yuki Tsunoda remain the team’s main drivers for this season.

“I feel like we’re going in the right direction,” said Ricciardo. “And honestly, everything I fed back to the team, I feel like they’ve actioned or done their best to make it happen or make it work. So honestly I can’t ask for too much more at the moment. It’s obviously now just how quickly can we get new parts on the car.”

Stake F1 C44

Stake C44

Another ‘newcomer’ to the fold, but not really. Stake F1 Team is a rebranded Sauber after the departure of Alfa Romeo, a stop-gap before the arrival of Audi (read more here). Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu remain as the team’s lead drivers.

“There’s a new identity for our team, as we enter as Stake F1 Team,” said team representative Alessandro Alunni Bravi. “We saw a lot of changes, which makes this such an exciting era for us. This partnership will help us reach a new audience and expand our fan base. It also gives us a way to have a fresh and innovative approach in the way we communicate.”  

Aston Martin AMR24

AMR 24

Aston Martin revealed its latest racer, called the AMR24. Double world champion Fernando Alonso and Lance Stroll, son of the company owner Laurence, retains their seats at the team.

Technical director Dan Fallows on the new racer: “We’ve made changes all over the car. It’s very different in many ways. The majority of the parts have changed on it, but it is still really essentially a strong evolution of last year’s car. We have kind of built on the end of AMR23. The obvious things that you’ll see that are different, are things like the nose and front wing. Bodywork will be different. But there’s also quite a lot of stuff under the hood, which hopefully you won’t see.”

Haas F1 Team VF24

2024 Formula One Cars

American outfit Haas showed the colours its VF24 would wear, but only in render form. The true shape of its car will only be seen at the pre-season test. Of course, big news for the team is the departure of colourful team principal Guenther Steiner. Newly-appointed team boss Ayao Komatsu is adamant that his work ethic and approach is somewhat different to his predecessor. Kevin Magnussen and Nico Hulkenberg remain as the team’s main drivers.
