Livery wise, the RedBull/Williams matte paint was a succes last year, especially making the livery more visible due to less reflection. I wonder how many teams will follow in 2017.

Mercedes will not follow the matte trend. Matte silver is grey! ;)
I like the the matte liverys of Red Bull an Williams.
The biggest changes we can expect from Ferrari and McLaren I think.

Maybe Mercedes will also present something new. The livery expert Axalta is now a team supplier!

Matte silver is matte silver. Just pick up an MacBook Pro and tell me it's grey.

Actually wrote my post on a MacBook Pro. :)
It's aluminium not silver.

Maybe you're right.

I'd like to see the Mercedes to shine in Iridium silver metallic like the civil cars.

Well technically it's anodized aluminum and the color is not the natural shade of aluminum. So it's neither natural silver or aluminum but generally speaking the world would say it's a "silver" color.

If someone said to me that you can have three wishes, my first would have been to get into racing, my second to be in Formula 1, my third to drive for Ferrari.

Sean Bull needs a job, hopefully not in F1.

They keep getting worse and worse.

Couldn't agree more. I don't see any logic in some of sponsors he puts on the cars, like why would Mclaren have Mobil1, if we already know they're going to Redbull? And I doubt Shell would advertise anywhere else than on Ferrari.

Why does anyone take notice of this half-assed creations by Sean Bull?
In my opinion for Mercedes less cyan und less black means a better look. The 'EQ' branding is a nice idea but the color looks horrible with the rest and makes absolutely no sense because EQ is the sub-brand for completely electric cars by MB.
The STR design is a timeless classic they'll hopefully never change.

if you think you can do better, go ahead, please.
if not, then i think it's rather inappropriate to call it half-assed when its done really really well. seriously.
