Manor (Finally) Complete The Grid

Well, there we have it. The last of 2015’s liveries has been spotted out in the wild, as the hastily assembled Manor-Marussia team continue their preparations to haul themselves onto the grid in Melbourne. And as expected, despite taking on a new name, they’ve kept essentially the same livery as Marussia had last year.

Of course, they can’t really be blamed for this: hiring a livery designer was probably pretty low down the list of budget priorities (although I bet many an F1 Colours reader would have done it for free!) and it’s not even as if they have any sponsors to try and incorporate. I mean, literally: they have no sponsors.

Yet they have at least made one change to the design, which is to remove the large black area from the side view; and that suggests that maybe they do have some kind of plan for the livery. As does the fact that they have brand new team wear, in a different shade of red, with a bit more emphasis on the black:

So perhaps, when they’ve had the chance to settle in, we’ll see something a bit different? And some actual logos on the car? Let’s hope so.

    The colours were the colours we’ve hoped for the 2015 McLaren.

  2. I believe that’s a standard template Errea shirt, very smart all the same. I think the car would look pretty good if they copied that scheme. Hopefully the 2015 car will have a decent livery and some sponsors when it arrives later (hopefully!). All the best to them, as above, its a better McLaren than McLaren did!
