2011 Liveries: The Verdict!

Right, then. We’ve now seen all twelve of 2011’s Formula One liveries. I wanted to wait, before doing the usual summary post, until we’d seen them all running on track in testing – but frankly, from the looks of things we may not see the HRT in motion before Melbourne [Read More]

Lotus Cars-sponsored Renault – the launch version

Wasn’t sure if I’d do this one, since we’d already posted the livery – but go on, then, we’ve had three launches today (and are edging towards it being the site’s most popular day in terms of hits), so let’s have the full set. It is a bit different from the [Read More]

I know Lotus, and you, sir, are no Lotus

Right, then. You could all probably imagine I was going to comment on this at some point. So. Here is a picture of a potential 2011 livery (although, as I’ll explain, I don’t believe it’s actually going to run next year) for the Team Formerly Known As [Read More]

2010 Liveries : The Verdict!

Well, with all 12 teams’ liveries now unveiled, and the season opening race mere days away, I thought it time to take one last look at all 12 together, to see how they compare to one-another – and to the history of liveries in general – and give them all marks out of ten. [Read More]

Renault looks like a Renault; Sauber looks like a BMW

Launchstravaganza! Despite being a Sunday, two teams have chosen to unveil their 2010 liveries (although only one on a 2010-spec car) as testing at Valencia gets underway today. First out of the blocks were Sauber, with a car that looks like an early ’90s back-of-the-grid effort, with nary a [Read More]

Is this the new Renault livery?

Found on grandprixgames.org’s forum. If it is, I cautiously approve. Hard to tell much due to the blurring, but Jordan already proved in ’97 and ’98 that red makes for a nice complement to black and yellow (I imagine on the real thing, it’ll look a bit less pink than it does [Read More]

Lesser-Spotted F1 Liveries

Some F1 liveries are iconic. The rosso corsa Ferrari, as used for decades. The red and white Marlboro McLaren, raced by legends such as Senna and Prost. The variations of the blue and white colour scheme used by Williams during their glory years in the '80s and '90s. The Silver Arrows Mercedes which was synonymous with both Mercedes in the '50s and McLaren over 40 years later. But not all designs reach this level of prominence. Some are consigned to the dustbin after no more than one or two events. Some are never raced at all. Others are never even intended to be raced! Created for reasons as varied as charity promotion, sponsorship changes and regulation disputes, this is a collection of obscure F1 liveries. [Read More]

2010 Livery Speculation

The 2010 season is looking to be one of the most exciting in years for those of us interested in the changing face of F1 liveries – with four entirely new teams joining the grid, two others rebranding, and at least one other set to change colour scheme as the result of a defunct sponsorship [Read More]

ByeNG

So the sponsor responsible for the most ghastly F1 liveries of recent times has left the building – ING have ended their association with Renault early, in the wake of the Nelson Piquet Jr “crashgate” scandal. ING had already stated that their deal with the team wouldn’t be [Read More]
