Red Bull’s New Livery Isn’t Great, But Is Better Than The Helmet Change Ban

So, apologies for being a bit late to catch up to this - but hey, they were a bit weirdly late to launch it. Red Bull have made a few tweaks to their livery as they prepare to start the Post-Vettel era, although perhaps not as many tweaks as we might have anticipated or hoped for. And actually, it's the kind of tweak that almost makes you wish they hadn't bothered. [Read More]

Is This The 2015 McLaren-Honda?

There are so many photoshops going around of people’s fantasy McLaren liveries at the moment that we would take this with a huge pinch of salt, and there are quite a few telltale hints of it just being a clever ‘shop; but we’re running the picture anyway because… well, look [Read More]

Fantasy 2015 Liveries Are A Big Thing Right Now And We Love Them

Perhaps it's the fact that 2014 didn't see too many in the way of drastic changes to the previous year's liveries - or perhaps it's just that we expect that 2015 may see a radically different style grid for more reasons than one - but whatever the rationale, it seems that there's a growing trend among fantasy F1 livery designers to already be looking forwards to next year, and styling possible future cars.

Force India Mix It Up With Smirnoff

Aside from McLaren shuffling through various sidepod sponsors, and Lotus shifting PDVSA to theirs in somewhat ugly fashion, we haven't had much in the way of dramatic livery changes since the start of the season. Force India, however, have just announced a new sponsorship deal - and with it comes a slightly altered livery. [Read More]

2014 McLaren Is Not West-Inspired, Either

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. [Read More]

The Numbers Game

I'm still undecided on whether or not I like the new "permanent numbers for drivers" rule being introduced into F1 for the 2014 season. But as more and more of the drivers start to announce their number picks, I am sort of finding myself involuntarily interested in who's gone for what - which must mean, I suppose, that I am warming to the idea. So with that in mind I thought I'd try and keep track of which numbers are going to be applied to which driver, as they're announced... [Read More]

Retro F1 by Camille De Bastiani

The concept of seeing classic F1 liveries painted on to modern cars isn't a new one, but it's one that's always a joy to see. French designer Camille De Bastiani, however, might just have ruined it for anyone else planning to do it in future - by painting a quite astonishing array of old liveries on a modern chassis in spectacularly beautiful fashion.
