  1. I’ve voted for McLaren, though none of them are especially inspiring this year. I will grant McLaren, Ferrari and BMW one thing though – they’ve found a paint job that isn’t offensive and stuck with it.

    Williams’ is better than last year if they’re using the livery photographed. I have the same reservations with Renault as I did last year (it’s OK from the side, but I can’t stand the view from the front). Red Bull and Toro Rosso still look too similar to each other and would benefit from better differentiation – though their basic colour schemes both work reasonably well. Toyota’s is bland, Honda’s would be good if it wasn’t for the weird blob on the side and Force India’s looks incomplete (swap the white on the main part of the car for interim-spec burgundy and you’d have a really good paint scheme).

  2. Let’s see…………I vote for the………Vanwall, for 1958.

    Oh, it’s for 2008!!!!

    Then, since they are all the “same” car, in the aerodominated sense, I’ll vote for my favorite….base color. That would be Chrome, only slightly beating out that Italian-Perfect Red.

    What would anyone think about a reversal of the, impossible to avoid, concept…”form follows function”, to wit, “function follows form”. It would appear from the grid sheets over the last few years, and the voting for this contest, that we may have exactly that situation. Beauty brings about speed. It would be nice to see all the Grand Prix teams developing an Aesthetics Dept.(increase the employment possibilities for painters, photographers, sculptors, dancers[???}). After which we could look forward to the development of, perhaps, Depts. of Philosophy, or Metaphysics. Kick the whole GP show up a notch!

  3. Well, i voted for Williams! I sincerely hope that they can come back to the good old winning days! Not yet this year i’m affraid. Not while they have those underpowered engines. Meanwhile if that engine is as bad as they say, what could Williams do if they had other? Well, given by the performances of that thing they call Toyota, i would say pretty well…

  4. i like the front half of the the honda car, force india car looks ok, mcclaren with pink for vodafone looks out of place. best looking livery has to be TORO-ROSSO. overall best looking car has to Ferrari. simply because there aren’t that many cars that look good.

  5. Honda all the way! so much better than last year.

  6. Ugliest: Force India
    Best looking: Ferrari

  7. …And the Super Aguri?


  8. Not out yet, and from reports today it might not be seen until the first race, if at all.

  9. Keith,

    Did you see that?


    I think that this livery concept is beautiful than any other 2008 Formula 1 car. And, of course, feed some dreams…


  10. Becken, those mock Audi liveries are stunning, way better than any of the 2008 cars, especially the silver and gold one. If only Audi would join F1, especially if they badged themselves as Lamborghini.

  11. Roswellite must be as old as me. WE know good looking when we see it ………. VANWALL gets my vote also.
