We still can’t get behind the multi-coloured tyres that look like fruit Polos, but otherwise this is an utterly iconic and striking design, and it’s a surprise that Benetton only kept it for one season. The splashes of paint give a really effective sense of speed, and the colours are carefully placed so as not to look like the completely incoherent mess it would have been very easy to fall into.
