Some teams have released the designs for their cars ahead of the start of the first Formula 2 testing session.

Arden, Prema and MP Motorsport have all shown their latest colors to the world ahead of the opening session of the new F2 championship on March 13 at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

Reigning series’ champions Prema will use an all-red design for 2017 with Ferrari Driver Academy logos on the cars of their drivers Antonio Fuoco and Charles Leclerc.

It is the first use of a more traditional team color for its sophomore season in the series after backing from Red Bull and Jagonya Ayam dictated a blue and yellow car for former drivers Pierre Gasly and Antonio Giovinazzi in 2016.

Arden’s car design is dictated by sponsorship, with Jagonya Ayam’s yellow colors being used to support their drivers, Sean Gelael and Norman Nato. This design is incredibly similar to that of Campos – Gelael’s former team – from last year.

MP is using a design with minimal changes compared to 2016, sticking with a red and white design, with red circles on the front wing and engine cover replacing the red squares from last season. Drivers Jordan King and Sergio

Drivers Jordan King and Sergio Sette Camara have been given the task of producing points-scoring finishes throughout the season in their new car.

Every team on the F2 grid is using the Dallara GP2-11 chassis for the first series of the new championship and the seventh season of an F1 feeder series in 2017.
