F1 Fanatic - F1
OKay, so this is just another livery thread, but I’ll admit…I absolutely hated the Brawn livery when I first saw it. I thought it was cheap and had been rushed through on Microsoft Paint. But now I look back…the BGP 001 was one stunning looking car. That low, wide snout and the tiny sidepods with a rarely seen in F1 white livery. And the little bits of yellow highlighter pen swooping down the car and the wide black bits…ooh nomnomnom. I suppose I could ask…what did/do you think of the Brawn? And what are your favourite looking cars and liveries of all time?
I love the end of season livery on the Ligier JS39 from 1993…very funky.

I didn’t like Brawn. Too much white on an already overly-white grid.
I loved the charcoal/grey/black McLarens :-)
I miss Jordan :-(
I liked the Brawn once it got some additional sponsors on it.
Brazil was the race that stood out as it finally looking like a “proper” F1 livery!!
I really miss the Old mild 7 Renault livery.
I like the old Benetton’s with the Camel livery. The 1994 Mild Seven livery was very nice too.
The early 90s era Williams of blue, white and yellow.
Other liveries that i like are –
FW 31 testing livery
rabbit definately likes the colour green! I love the Lotus Martini thats a nice one, so is the Williams testing livery.
I like the Williams from 1998 because it looks so bad, red just didnt go well with Williams.
I love the Leyton House one too, pretty vile colours but it just works so well:
I still love the 2010 RedBull Livery.. the colours just flow off each other perfectly, plus Mark’s helmet looks part of the car (and he didn’t even change the design!)
i get excited just seeing the flash of colours
and also, i’m surprised noones said the R30 yet..
The BGP01 was indeed nice. Favourites so far…R30 (dam Lotus!) and the W01…looks fantastic with both Schumacher and Rosberg and that Petronas green mmmmm.
I really liked the BGP livery, I use Jenson’s flourescent helmet design in games when I can.
My other favourites would probably be the late-90s yellow B&H Jordans.
Williams testing livery is probably my fafourite. I was quite disappointed they didn’t use it during the season.
Then there’s Renault, which was probably the easiest to spot in any conditions, which i think is what good livery should do.
Speaking of white liveries, i preferred the 2010 Sauber to Brawn.
On a side note, I started watching F1 in 2002 and always wanted to see a black and red car. Then in 2010 i did. Virgin ruined it for me :D
I really liked the 2001 Prost with the Metalic Blue and red barge boards. In bad weather races the blue looked really dark, but when the sun hit it it was almost as bright as the Benneton (which I also really like and think is the best of the Mild Seven years)
