    It is shame that Red Bull has not sent us a photo of the part of a car with our picture on it. I can remember that Honda has sent me a hi res photo of my name on the car. But never mind it is for a great cause. Nice livery dough

    The pics are barely visible. Its better if they go back to the 2007 livery or increase the size of the pictures

    From a distance it looks almost metallic, or more metallic than usual, which is quite welcome. For double world champions they have a frightfully dull livery, the STR one looks miles better.

    Great idea and it looks great, I’ve used on of the images on my desktop.

    Oh and could the drivers quotes be any more PR friendly?! ;)
