Teams to group launch new cars in 2018

Formula 1 is working on a 'group launch' concept for 2018, whereby all teams would present their new cars together during a special dedicated day.

Germany's Auto Motor und Sport says that Liberty Media is considering on the idea although the venue, which could be Barcelona, has yet to be decided.

Ahead of a new season, teams typically organise their own launches, either at their base, with an online broadcasting, or on site before the start of pre-season testing as many teams did this year at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona.

Formula 1's new owners are seeking to create a major event around the multiple presentation day, providing fans with free admission and the opportunity to see the cars and drivers up close.
