Things are a bit quiet on the liveries front at the moment – those of us who’ve been hoping for a change to the Brawn livery have been sorely disappointed, although you’d hope that someone, somewhere back at the factory is working on something ready to roll out for the European races. We’ll see. Anyway, in the meantime, this was flagged up in comments to the previous post, but I thought it was worth linking to from the main page – over at Speed TV, noted livery designer Andy Blackmore has cast his eye over the various 2009 liveries in far more authoritative and technically-minded fashion than my own scribblings. Here’s part one of the article, and then part two. If you’re the sort of person who reads this site, then it’s highly recommended reading!
Reading the articles also led me to Andy’s own site, where you can read more about his work in the industry – and where he also publishes his excellent spotters guides to various sports, including a superbly-realised F1 2009 graphic. Again, well worth checking out.
More from me soon – the next published article on here (assuming there’s no new livery news in the interim) will either be a look at the 20 drivers’ helmet designs, or my look back at the history of the Jordan team’s liveries. Meanwhile, if you spot anything such as the above article that you think might be of interest to the site’s readers, either leave it in comments, or drop me a line.
