With the 2020 Formula 1 season almost upon and car launches already well underway, Crash.net rounds up the best images so far from each team's respective unveilings of their latest machines...

Haas VF-20

Haas became the first F1 team to reveal images of its 2020 car on February 6, releasing a selection of digital renderings of its latest challenger.

The American squad will officially roll out its Ferrari-powered VF-20 for the first time on the morning of the opening pre-season F1 test at Barcelona on February 19.

Mercedes W11

Mercedes is yet to showcase its 2020 challenger, though on Monday 10 during a press conference announcing new principle partner INEOS, the reigning world champion squad also presented its livery for the upcoming campaign.

The German manufacturer will launch its W11 contender on Friday 14, before carrying out an initial shakedown at Silverstone like it has done in previous years.

Ferrari SF1000

Ferrari went old-school with a glitzy launch event at the Romolo Valli Municipal Theatre in Reggio Emilia near its Maranello headquarters on February 11, becoming the first F1 team to physically reveal its 2020 car.

The Italian squad will hope its SF1000 - named so to celebrate its upcoming 1000th grand prix in France - can fire it back to title glory following a 12-year drought.

Red Bull RB16

Red Bull revealed a first glimpse of its Honda-powered RB16 machine on February 12, before Max Verstappen debuted the car during a shakedown run at Silverstone.

Unlike in previous years, the Milton Keynes outfit did not unveil its car using a one-off ‘camo’ livery, but instead opted to launch in its traditional colours.

Renault R.S.20

Renault did things a little differently at its Paris launch, as its 2020 F1 car did not actually make a physical appearance due to still being in bits and already en route to Barcelona for pre-season testing. 

Instead, the French manufacturer teased its R.S.20 concept with a series of digital renderings in a temporary all-black matte colour scheme which gave little of its latest design away.

McLaren MCL35

McLaren launched its 2020 F1 challenger, the MCL35 at its Woking headqaurters on Thursday. 

The British squad's latest design - which it hopes will keep it at the head of F1's midfield pack once more in 2020 - features a striking papaya and blue livery in a matte finish. 

Mercedes W11

Defending F1 world champions Mercedes led the reveals on a busy Friday as it completed a full launch and shakedown test at Silverstone with the W11.

Both Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas were on hand to drive the new Mercedes car which has a refined design concept to allow greater development throughout the season plus an upgraded power unit.

Alfa Romeo C39

Meanwhile at Fiorano, Alfa Romeo completed its own shakedown with its new C39 sporting a one-off all-black snake livery. Kimi Raikkonen completed 33 laps at the Ferrari private test track, while the Swiss team will officially present its 2020 F1 car on the opening morning of pre-season testing in the pitlane at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

AlphaTauri AT01

Completing a triple-header of launches on Valentine's Day was the rebranded Scuderia AlphaTauri Honda squad. Formerly Toro Rosso, the Italian team has taken the name of Red Bull's fashion brand and revealed a striking new livery at Red Bull's Hangar-7 in Salzburg. The team is completing a shakedown of the AT01 at Misano on Saturday.

Williams FW43

ROKiT Williams Racing were the next to reveal its 2020 F1 car, the FW43, with a largely unchanged concept from the FW42 which failed to impress last season and left the team bottom of the F1 world constructors' championship.

On the same day as its digital launch, the British team completed a shakedown and filming day at Circuit de Catalunya alongside Renault and Haas.

Racing Point RP20

BWT Racing Point were, sort of, the last team to reveal its 2020 F1 team - albeit with Renault launching without its car - as it pulled the covers off its RP20 at its new title sponsors base in Austria.
