Back on safer ground this time, I think, and the classic red Brabham livery from the late ‘70s. It’s a design that’s completely of its time, and you know it simply wouldn’t work on a modern-day car – but something about it fits perfectly, even if the shade of red isn’t the most appealing. Simple and effective – and a classic example of a sponsor going beyond simply putting their name on the car, throwing themselves wholeheartedly into the enterprise to the extent of calling the branding “Martini Racing” (let’s not, for now, go into the ethics of mixing alcohol with driving, eh?) Of the various Brabhams that carried this livery, my favourite is the 1977 version – just check out the massive white race numbers on the engine cover. Marvellous.
