New F1 cars in pictures

Michael Schumacher in the new Ferrari F2004

Unlike rivals Williams and McLaren, Ferrari's new car looks conservative and appeared late. But it has already broken the lap record at the team's Fiorano and Mugello test tracks

Juan Pablo Montoya behind the wheel of the Williams-BMW FW26

Williams caused gasps of excitement at their launch with their innovative wide nose and twin-keel chassis layout. The new FW26 has looked very quick in testing

David Coulthard in the new McLaren-Mercedes MP4-19

McLaren, like Williams, have gone for radical innovation in their new car. The MP4-19 was quick straight away, but has recently suffered reliability problems with its Mercedes engine

Fernando Alonso in the new Renault R24

Renault have honed last year's beautifully-balanced car and added a new, more powerful engine for 2004, and have set quick times in tests

Jenson Button in the BAR-Honda 006

BAR have been the surprise of the winter, setting scintillating times in testing in the new Honda-engined 006. The team are very confident of a strong season in 2004

Giancarlo Fisichella in the new Sauber C24

Sauber have been accused of copying last year's Ferrari car, which they deny, but the new car has impressed onlookers at test tracks over the winter, particularly in the hands of new driver Giancarlo Fisichella

F1 rookie Christian Klien in the Jaguar R5

Jaguar's new R5 has been disappointing so far, but the team deny that it has a major aerodynamic problem

Olivier Panis in the new Toyota

Toyota have been steady rather than impressive in winter testing with their new car, which is an evolutionary development of their 2003 machine

Nick Heidfeld, Jordan's only confirmed driver, in the new EJ14 F1 car

Jordan have spent the winter struggling to find drivers who can boost their meagre budget, and the new EJ14 has so far only run at a damp Silverstone

The new Minardi makes its debut at Misano

Minardi were the last team to produce their car, with Gianmaria Bruni and Zsolt Baumgartner running it at Misano in mid-February
