Renault and Brawn’s new liveries

Fernando Alonso heads out on track with his re-liveried Renault

While Renault hastily peeled off their ING and Mutua Madrilena stickers, a few garages up Brawn were applying fresh Canon decals to their BGP 001s.

Incredibly, in the first session the unwell Romain Grosjean crashed his R29 into the barriers at the very spot where Nelson Piquet Jnr had his now-infamous crash last year.

Here’s some pictures of the new-look Brawn and Renault liveries.

The de-cluttering of Renault’s awkward paint scheme is the only positive thing, however miniscule, to have resulted from the sorry ‘crashgate’ affair.

Renault haven’t had time to unstitch the ING branding from their team’s kit, but that will likely be done in time for the Japanese Grand Prix next weekend.

It’s possible they may make more substantial changes to the livery to remove the orange and white ING colouring.

The addition of Canon logos to the Brawns harks back to the winning Williams machines of the mid-eighties. It’s quite appropriate, as it looks like no-one has any chance of beating Brawn to the titles this year. Indeed, they could cement the constructors’ championship this weekend.

    The Renault looks good without the ING livery. I feel bad for them though.

  2. I liked that after grosjeans little mishap the camera cut to bob bell and he had a smile and a little shake of the head .
    grosjean looks like a mop in a racing suit , he’s a quirky looking kid , but for god sake don’t go off tomorrow.

  3. The reporter says “This shows, it was clearly, once and for all not Piquet’s failure, the car takes blame for it.”

    Just a little odd bit of news

    Germany’s Sport Bild now reports that mutual team sponsor Santander, keen to make room at Ferrari for Spaniard Alonso, has agreed to pay McLaren 25 million euros if it will give Raikkonen a race seat for 2010.

    I think the cars this year are pretty. They have grown on me and I like Renault livery, just not now it’s too sad with the lack of sponsors :(

  5. ‘OH… its a RENAULT!’ lol. Grosjean already practicing for the race ;) Brawn looks good, virgin stickers grown too. They must be getting more sponsors now they have Mercedes backing.
