this is what i'm talking about, this looks legit awesome.

how on earth did they end up with the trash they showed. it's like they're HRT.
I agree completely. It is a stunning design. Their livery looks like a GP2 livery. GP2. Aarrgh!

..and like back-of-the-grid-GP2, too.
No, Kimi, no. You will not have the drink.

It looks better when the template car is AMR21. On FW43B anything would look worse. :mrgreen:

That livery is iconic.

Speaking of iconic liveries, I see very few people doing modern takes on the silver West livery, which I absolutely adore. I still maintain the MP4/13 is one of the best-looking F1 cars of all time.

That look forever belongs to McLaren. It would be like trying to put the Marlboro red and white on another team's car.

I think it’s nice we’re getting more of the traditional national racing colours this year (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of ... ng_colours in case you don’t know what I’m talking about).

We now have:
- Ferrari in Red for Italy (obviously)
- Alfa Romeo somewhat in Red (I wish it was more Red - and I love the shade they use - but I guess Sauber want to remain a bit Swiss)
- Alpine in Blue for France
- Aston in Green for Britain (and a reasonably faithful British racing green - or at least closer than Ferrari is to Rosso Corsa)
- Mercedes obviously still using black rather than silver (or white) but in principle that may go back next year (and they’re doing it for a good reason)
- even Haas - while clearly actually trying to do a Russian flag - are actually not a million miles away from the white with blue stripes of the US

So anyway, not exactly perfect but kinda interesting and nice to see a bit more tradition.

Well, to be fair, most teams are based in england so they all should thus be british racing green except for Ferrari.

Also red is not actually a traditional 'country' colour. It's blue. Azzuri.

I know you're refering to 'racing' colors but that's much more something established as manufacturer-imposed, and nothing with nationality. that only came later.

But if that, then Alpha Tauri should be Red.
Alfa Romeo should be fully white.

Weren’t there Swiss red with a white bonnet or something? Or the other way round... somehow I remember the colours were almost spot on
