F1 Fanatic - James Brickles
First races for the circuit that produced the last wins for former world champions?
Mercedes – 8 – Probably the best looking of the cars we’ve seen so far, and I’ve never disliked the livery either, even if it doesn’t evolve.
Ferrari – 6 – Very ambitious design, especially from the sidepods. Not too bad but I’ve never really been a fan of the extra white on the scarlet livery.
Force India – 3 – Definitely my least favourite in terms of design and livery which is a shame. The colour scheme doesn’t work for me. I’ll still be cheering Perez on though.
Williams – 6 – Appears to be very conservative design compared to others. Martini livery is a classic.
McLaren – 8 – Orange!!! Enough said.
Renault – 9 – Awesome livery and they’ve designed the shark fin nicely as well. The black Renault writing against the yellow rear wing works very well. My favourite Renault livery since 2010
Sauber – 7 – I actually quite like the livery, like a throwback to 1996 and the design is pretty nice as well.
I’m expecting the Red Bull to be a good looking car, they tend to be, and I like the matt design as well. Not sure what sort of design or livery Haas will bring, but it’ll be interesting to see if they’ll go any different to last year’s colour scheme.
Did all their first wins come in the rain?
Have they all crashed out of their home grand prix whilst leading?
2006 was a good one as well, lots of action throughout the race.
What connects these four drivers?
Juan Pablo Montoya
I’ll give a clue if people are struggling :)
Is it something to do with losing wins due to driving infringements?
Very much reminds me of when Champcar visited San Jose for the first time.
Pretty much got it there, more specifically drivers that have crashed under braking for the chicane.
That was a bit lucky!
How about these…
Bit of a wild guess but is it to do with helmet designs that commemorate Ayrton Senna?
It’s to do with a particular circuit on the F1 Calendar.
