well now that Sean Bull has been hired by Renault F1 I guess he is contractually obligated to only do their designs..... no more SB concepts perhaps.... :(
I'm sure he'll still be allowed - he'll just have to make sure its not a conflict of interest, or do a livery that he knows Ren might use..

In my opinion that would be a good thing. Never liked Sean Bulls clueless overhyped fan art.
sure bud.

i'm happy for him.
really cool to hear somebody making their dreams come true.
Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.

I wonder if they rejected the one with red flow lines as it looked a bit like something Mclaren might have had back in the McLaren Mercedes days?

I made the mistake of assuming the same on r/formula1 and was actually told the red is just there to indicate where the stripes are going and not their actual color.

I find those water droplets on the real FI BWT livery horrendous...They spoil that nice original livery completely. I hope they'll ditch them... with that very cheap silver.
Thank you FI, you listened to me :P
(But that white wasnt necessary)

And tjhe matte pink was nicer IMO

I love that Force India livery.
If you no longer go for the space someone always has to leave, you're no longer a racing driver

Very good livery from Force India :o

What about a part of the Halo paint with the main color of the driver's helmet ?

Howdy! Long time reader of the forums here- huge fan of the liveries posted, always surprised how cool fan made liveries can turn out, never surprised when the actual liveries fall short.

Anyways, I figured this would be the appropriate place to ask; can any of ya'll work your photoshop magic and post an image of the new '18 cars without the halo? I keep looking at the cars, and either blocking the area with my thumb or tape on the screen.

When you look at the Mercedes livery, it doesn't really have many more sponsors than McLaren....but their livery hides that fact.

Today's news is that Martini are leaving Williams at the end of the year, and leaving F1 entirely, or going to McLaren.

So, a non-Martini Williams (would Sure/Rexona step up to the main sponsorship?) car, and a Papaya Orange/Martini-McLaren. Hmm. Martini-McLaren, that sounds good :) .
