We would like to inform you that the official launch of our new car – the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes MP4-28 – will take place in the UK on Thursday 31st January 2013.


I read somewhere that Ferrari will unveil the 2013 car on Saturday 2nd February.

Access to the event is limited and will be by invitation only. Accreditation details will be issued via email in the New Year


So that leads me to think it won't be in Woking. Somewhere sponsor driven and with limited capacity. Maybe Vodafone HQ in Newbury (which is really near me!) or somewhere else..?

Oh, and I'll email them if they don't invite us :lol:

Hah, that's my birthday. Sweet. :D
Btw, I'm so jealous that you get to go to the unveiling, Phil!

What? I don't know if I do! They send out invites and we've never been so I doubt we'll get invited. But I'll try! :)

Oh, I see. :D I though it just depends on you, whether you go or not.
Anyways, I'm sure they'll send you invites. One can dream, right? :D

Sauber to launch on February 2nd.

We've been invited, but naturally, it's a bit far to go for something lasting 45 minutes

Autosprint says F2013 car will be launched on February 2, but I don't believe it.

We might see the Lotus E21 at the end of January.
"The next few weeks for me will be intense training, with the presentation of the new car at the end of the month," said Grosjean.

They usually like to be first, do Ferrari. I'd guess the weekend before the 2nd...

Lotus launched theirs in Enstone last year at the end of January. Maybe they'll do the same?

Maybe before one day of McLaren's launch. Get the most coverage from the media!

Caterham was first in 2012 I think, then McLaren?
