Just 55 days to the Australian Grand Prix! Grin
There had been some changes:

Power units - each driver is restricted to four power units during the season, although that will be increased to five (as in 2014) if the number of races as originally scheduled exceeds 20. Should a driver exceed the total, a grid penalty (see below) will be imposed.

Power unit penalties - the replacement of a complete power unit no longer results in an automatic penalty; instead penalties are applied cumulatively based on the individual components of each power unit. Unlike in 2014, grid penalties no longer roll over to the next event. If a driver is unable to take their full grid penalty, the remainder will be applied as a time penalty for the relevant Grand Prix, on the following basis:

1-5 grid places: five-second time penalty
6-10 grid places: drive-through penalty
11-20 grid places: ten-second stop-and-go penalty
More than 20 grid places: a time penalty

New penalties - in addition to the five-second penalty introduced for 2014, race stewards also have the option to hand out ten-second penalties for minor infringements in 2015.

Points - double points will no longer be applied for the season finale in 2015.

Standings restarts - a proposal for standing restarts has been rescinded, meaning safety-car restarts will follow the same procedure as in previous years.

Virtual Safety Car - in a bid to improve safety, particularly in the event of double waved yellow flags, a virtual safety car system designed to ensure drivers slow sufficiently has been introduced for 2015. This can be used to neutralise a race without having to introducing the safety car itself.

Race suspensions - for 2015, drivers must proceed slowly into the pit lane, rather than back onto the starting grid, in the event of a race suspension.

Clearing the grid - a driver will be forced to start from the pit lane if any member of his team, or any relevant equipment, remains on the starting grid after the 15-second signal has been shown.

Unsafe releases - for 2015, unsafe releases will be met with an automatic ten-second stop-and-go penalty for the relevant driver. Additional penalties may be imposed at the stewards’ discretion.

Safety car lapped drivers - as was the case in 2014, lapped cars may unlap themselves behind the safety car; however, the safety car will no longer need to wait until said drivers have caught back up to the back of the field before leaving the track. Instead, the safety car is free to pull back into the pits on the following lap after the last lapped car has been waved through.

Suspension - any suspension systems fitted to either the front or rear wheels may only react to direct changes of load applied to the relevant section. Front-and-Rear Interconnected Suspension (FRIC) will therefore be formally outlawed.

Gearbox - teams will no longer be able to re-nominate gearings during the season - they could do it once in 2014.

Minimum weight - the minimum weight has been increased slightly for 2015 - without fuel, each car must weigh at least 702kg.

Nose designs - new regulations, brought in to improve safety and also restrict strange and ugly solutions, mean nose designs become more uniform. 2014 layouts like the anteater and twin tusk will no longer be legal.

Cockpit safety - the Zylon anti-intrusion panels on both sides of the survival cell have been extended upwards to the rim of the cockpit and alongside the driver’s head.

In-season testing - there will be two in-season two-day tests, down from four in 2014. Two of the four days in total must be reserved for young drivers.

18 drivers...9 teams...thats the next season...awesome, isn't it?
Well technically both Manor F1 and Caterham F1 still have open spots at this point, which would make 22 drivers and 11 teams
Interested to see how Alonso and Button will get on at McLaren Wink
Just an update
Here in the end of January 7 of the 9 teams have launched their cars for the upcoming 2015 season. Only Red Bull and their sister team Toro Rosso had not launched their cars. The first pre-season test session is in Jerez February 1.

some great looking cars this season, Force India and Sauber are my favorites.
The Sauber brought to you by early '90s F1 apparently, and cars didn't look good back then. Lot more standardisaztion in design this season, Williams so far being the only ones with a dildo on the front.
I really wish they'd get rid of the dildo nose. It ruins the cars imo. Every time I see it, I cant help but think the designer did it because of a dare he had with someone.
Other than that, they look really good! Hate sauber colour scheme, love the rest.
Lotus again the best imo, as I expected. McLarens livery pretty nice, too. Still a shame they didn't could go back to the old-school white-red.
I think Sauber look the best and stand out from the crowd, shame Caterham and Marussia may be off the grid but you never know... :/

I feel as if I am going to mix up force India and Mclaren this season, Lotus looks the best and I like Sauber's unique color scheme.
I agree about Sauber, it's good that at least one or two teams go away from the mainly black/silver/white designs. Now I might actually recognise them out on the track too instead of thinking they're Force India or McLaren for most of the race Pfft
Here is the two missing cars:

Red Bull

(Remember that it is only a test livery)

Toro Rosso

Don't think Red Bull are using that livery during the season
