February 4 marks 50 days until the start of the 2017 Formula 1 season in Melbourne, Australia, and the beginning of what is shaping up to be a new era for the sport.

New regulations, new drivers and even a new owner are all in play for the coming year, which is guaranteed to offer a fresh world champion following Nico Rosberg’s decision to quit at the end of 2016.

Besides the races themselves, all of the teams are planning to launch their cars in the days leading up to pre-season testing in Barcelona, where eight days of running is planned to take place.
