1994: Rothmans Williams Renault

I don’t like picking the same team for back-to-back years in this list – you’ll see elsewhere that I’ve tried to avoid it as much as possible. But Williams take it here, for the genuinely striking and memorable Rothmans livery. It was good in ’95 and ’96, too (less so in ’97), but in those years it’s up against stiffer competition. Here, although it’s indelibly associated with tragedy, it’s still the standout livery of the season. It’s also more cleanly defined in ’94 than in the years that followed, with the lines suiting the rounded car better than the more rectangular FW17 and FW18.
