Force India, I’m disappointed. You’re a brand new team. You’re not bound by any corporate colours, nor by being Japanese (which appears to oblige teams to paint their cars white and red). You had a lovely shade of burgundy on your test car that would have looked awesome if you’d decked out the whole thing in it. You’re also launching your car later than almost everyone else on the grid – so you must be aware that BMW, Honda, Toyota and (probably) Super Aguri have predominantly white cars, with significant amounts of the colour splashed on the Renault and (probably) Williams, too.
So I ask you… what the hell is this all about?
Not only is it white… it’s bloody ugly, as well. The gold looks ridiculously ’70sish, and clashes with the red of the Kingfisher logo. Quite frankly, I feel completely justified in hoping that the newest owners of F1’s Cursed Team go the way of Midland and Spyker before them. At least those two had distinctive liveries.
