New livery for Monaco
I've read that it will remain for the rest of the season due to ''better'' car visibility

Just to throw a little bit of color theory into the conversation and highlight that even a team as well funded as HAAS is can still make some mistakes no billion dollar company should be making.

The problem with the HAAS livery this season has been the GREY/RED combo are exactly the same value - or so close that it doesnt matter.

When you put a color on top of a grey and both share the same value - you're not getting any contrast. Under most lighting conditions, the sidepod HAAS logo was basically invisible when shot on TV cameras (photographic equipment is much different and irrelevant giving that HAAS is in F1 to promote its brand on TV cameras).

To highlight the problem I'm sharing this side by side image shot on photographic equipment. The right hand image has only had 1 process done to it, full desaturation. The HAAS on the sidepod is basically the same tone of grey as the grey bodywork.

Now this problem is even worse on TV cameras.



Now if you see the WHITE HAAS logo on the rear wing is still highly visible under de-saturation.

Kid's, if you're going to spend a few billion to promote your brand on TV, learn some basics of color theory.
