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.
West is my all-time favorite McLaren livery. To me MP4-20 is the best-looking F1 car of 21st century :)

Well, to be fair, most teams are based in england so they all should thus be british racing green except for Ferrari.
To be fair, they're all diverse, multinational teams and not just brits, which makes that statement obsolete.

There's no such thing as a single "British Racing Green"... :wink:

Well, the Red was a National Colour for Italy (like the Green and White of course). Historically, after Napoleon, Green was the most used as a "National Colour for Kingdom of Italy" after, always the Red. The "Savoy Blue" was added as another national color as homage to Savoia Dynasty. BTW, I agree that the National Racing Colours were just a practical way to create a sort of scheme for every country. At the end I prefer when every manufacturer use its own color (Yellow for Renault, Almond Green for Aston Martin, Silver for Ferrari, Championship White for Honda etc).

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.

Small detail but not unimportant. The national colours are/were not for the constructor but for the team. If an American team bought a couple of Ferraris, they would race in the American colours.

"British Racing Green"...whether it exists or not...I just wish, whatever the hue, it did not look black as does the Aston.

British Racing Green is typically a very dark colour.

Aston Martin Racing Green however is usually a much lighter colour.

However, Aston Martin seem to be racing a colour which is somewhere in-between.

you know what would be pretty cool?

a one-off RBR livery in the RED EDITION colours

Image

wouldn't that be amazing, a red redbull with some chrome elements, and some green.

Special for the Mexican GP?

is that even allowed? I mean Ferrari after all drove a dark red livery for their 1000th GP.
For Alonso's goodbye @ Mclaren they had a spanish flag on the car.

Agreed. We had an MP4/13 on the top of our wedding cake.

If I am not mistaken it is allowed, though team has to get a permission from FIA and if I am not mistaken other teams must agree on it. Just think of RB's special liveries in Monaco in their first years in F1. Or Wings for Life liveries at Silverstone with photos of their fans as part of a livery. Or that special white livery they ran on Coulthard's car for his final race, but Webber had the standard livery
