Well. How about this, then?
I was actually going to wait until the site’s fifth birthday, on 12th January, to launch this – but I got everything ready a bit more quickly than anticipated, and couldn’t bring myself to wait an entire week to unleash it on you. So here it is – the brand new F1 Colours, with a brand new home, at f1colours.com.
I just thought it was about time to freshen everything up, make the site look a bit more robust and professional, and future-proof it to allow for possible expansion and growth in the future. After five years, in which you the readers have been a fantastic community and helped the site stay strong with your discussion of my posts, it just felt like it needed – and deserved! – it. But for the moment, aside from the structural overhaul and lick of paint, the site will generally remain the same in terms of outlook and focus – and all the old content and articles remain. I’ll still be most active during the months of January through March, as the F1 teams unveil their new liveries, driver uniforms, helmets and so on. And longer articles, including more entries in the Livery Histories series and guest contributions, will continue to make their every-so-often appearances.
As you can’t fail to have noticed, all of this has been done just in time for launch season – so keep your eye on the site over the next few weeks for the first tricklings-through of 2012 livery and sponsorship news! And don’t forget, you can keep up with my shorter livery-based blatherings – as well as being updated whenever there’s a new post – by following @f1colours on Twitter.
Hope you like the revamped site, and don’t hesitate to tell me what you think!
