The Top 25 F1 Liveries of All Time : #13


One of only a handful of teams to recognise what a good combination black, white and yellow makes, Minardi’s striped car from 1990 probably would have been the one to make this list if it didn’t look so much like a ripoff of the early ‘80s Renault livery. As it is, though, the predominantly black car, with strips of white and yellow at the rear, was a much more distinctive effort. Minardi carved out a good visual identity for themselves with this colour combination, so it’s somewhat surprising that they subsequently flitted between various forgettable designs for most of the ‘90s (save a brief return to it in ’97).

    I don’t remember it at all, but I like it a lot.

    Also, if Bruce Wayne sponsored a F1 team, this is probably what his cars would look like.

    It was simple, and it worked. Great livery.

    Nice to see this one in there, probably the most underrated livery in F1 history, and like you I was disappointed to see Minardi go through loads of other colour schemes with the exception of ’97, which then had too much white and was spoiled a bit by the Mild Seven blue.
