Where are the black helmets with pointy ears?!

That would be truly amazing.

They definitely should have black helmets.

I’m all for the batman logo and all, but I can’t help but wonder how amazingly cool a real batman symbol would have looked on the black and yellow renault R30 ……….

Does anyone else pickup on the irony of the “Dark Knight Rises” logo right next to GRO ;)

What’s ironic about it?
Randy (@randy) said on 6th July 2012, 7:00
I wouldn’t call it irony.
I’m lost for words how should we call it. Prophecy perhaps? :P

That is possibly one of the most hideous one-off liveries I’ve ever seen and I’m a huge fan of the Batman logo—it’s so icon and timeless. Looks like they just slapped a sticker wherever they could find space on the sidepod. There is no drama, no importance, no focus. I would likely have never noticed had it not been for this news blurb. Someone should have shelled out more money for more space.

Is that a demo Lotus?
Cause nose looks totally reworked, much more fluid, that rear wing and shark-flaps on top of the side-pods are gone.

I agree…the golden parts of the livery are much darker than usual as well, much more like last year. Might be updates though?

One of the drivers in this photo is happy to be in this photo.

Also, regardless of batman liveries – its still the best looking car on the grid…

Given the predicted weather, I would say that they may be better off using the vehicle in the background for the GP.
