Well, they teased us. They must have known what they were doing leaving those sidepods outside their garage - they knew we'd all think they were bringing back a version of the classic 1997-2005 West "Silver Arrows" livery. We were all set to declare them late victors over Williams in the "best livery of 2014" stakes. And then no, it turns out that it's a "special" one-off livery for Melbourne to commemorate twenty years of their partnership with Mobil 1. Well, booooo.

forceindia14

Well, this is nice. Force India have flouted usual convention when it comes to new livery/car announcements, by suddenly shuffling an image of their 2014 challenger onto the web without having previously announced an actual launch date or anything.
