    Slighty random question, I know, but I was wondering what people’s opinions are on Red Bull Racing’s ever present blue colour scheme. After 6 seasons of running a near identical design, is anyone else hoping for a change?

    Personally, I think it’s one of the better liveries on the grid, and I like the bull and sun graphic they use, but I’d like to see a revamp soon as it’s getting a bit tired- Red Bull are fast becoming the Toyota of livery design!

    Also, is it just me or does anyone miss the film tie ins they always used to do at the Monaco GP? Seeing David Coulthard on the podium in a Superman cape was a sight to behold!

    Love the new one a lot more it’s brighter and almost purple. 2005 looks a bit dull.

    Star Wars one has to be the best though :P

    Also Red Bull has changed the car over the years if you look at one by one but only very slightly. It’s a bit like Ferrari though, what else can they do?

    It’s ok, bit fussy for me though. I’d rather it was more like the livery of the Sauber C14 – much simpler, slightly darker and more menacing.

    The Toro Rosso liveries have been better in my view, more red/purple/gold etc and more variety over the years, while still clearly being Red Bull sponsorship.

    I used to love Toro Rosso’s livery ’til they changed it in 2009, adding more logo’s and a smaller bull on the airbox. Nowadays I prefer RBR’s

    I didn’t like the STR4 that much but the nose pattern and the gold stripes on the STR5 make it my favourite on the grid :)

    RedBulls liveries have been good and while they have roughly stayed the same they make them look different somehow, while Toyotas always looked the same and got boring very quickly

    plus the Monaco and Silvestone special liveries they have done are very cool

    I like them. The evolution of the Torro Rosso has been quite interesting. I think I preferred the ’08 version of the STR was better though.

    I quite like them, especially the way the livery looks on the general style of the car since 2009. It’s a good thing they got rid of the old graphic right in front of the pilot (the square-logo) and replaced it with the current one.

    This was my favourite looking toro rosso

    The livery for this car was hand painted at every race.

    Does anyone remember the livery they used when they first bought the Jaguar team in 2004? It was basically the blue and silver square pattern they use on Red Bull cans, applied to a car. Slightly unimaginative perhaps, but it looked quite good!

    I agree with the original post. Good looking livery, but I would love a new fresh look about now!

    They are doing good. I think Newey care about the car aerodynamics so much that he even forgot that the car is running more or less with the same livery for 6 season.

    I don’t want it to be changed let it be the way it is.
