Well, I had to have a Ferrari in there at some point, didn’t I? In truth, I was almost tempted to be perverse and go with one of the designs from the late ‘70s – when the all-red tradition apparently went out of the window, and the hulking monoliths had plenty of white, plus Italian flag-coloured stripes draped across them. In the end, however, the look that ran through most of the ‘80s and ‘90s – while it was synonymous with utterly barren years in terms of titles – won out. This is one of the most widely-recognisable F1 liveries in history, due in part to constant use of it (or an approximation of it) in promotion whenever a generic-looking car was needed – on video game boxes, toys, birthday cards, and so on. Dark red, black wings, yellow flashes, minimal sponsors – classic.
