With the new F1 campaign fast approaching, the wraps are coming off the 2013 cars and, true to the spirit of the launch season, Sky Sports F1 has a new series of car launch programmes ready to unveil for your viewing pleasure.

In addition to the Lotus special - featuring exclusive and highly-revealing interviews with both Romain Grosjean and Kimi Raikkonen - which was first broadcast on Wednesday night and will be replayed this Thursday evening at 7pm, the Sky F1 team will also be taking the wraps off launch programmes for McLaren, Force India and World Champions Red Bull - with the possibility of more to follow.

And, if you missed the channel's announcement earlier in the week, the good news is that the car launch programmes are just a taste of what is to come on Sky Sports F1 through February and early March as our dedicated Formula 1 channel gears up for the new season.

Commencing next Tuesday for the start of the first test at Jerez, the channel will be broadcasting an umissable half-hour of reports, analysis and interviews after each day of winter testing.

The daily test package will begin at 9pm with an end-of-day report which will then be immediately followed by the cherry on the top that is Ted's Notebook as our very own Mr Kravitz scours the paddock for the inside line on the team's testing times and their preparations for Melbourne.
