Spray a wind tunnel model with a livery? That's a lot of time and money for no gain at all.
Agreed, but these guys receive literally millions in sponsorship from people who are desperate to have their products plastered all over these machines.

The answer to the ultimate question, of life, the Universe and ... Everything?
