F1 Livery Histories should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
F1 Livery Histories

Hi everyone,

I'd like to share with you a youtube channel I launched last month called "F1 Livery Histories", which catalogues the different paint jobs, colour schemes & sponsors adopted by different Formula One teams over the years. For anyone who likes having a nostalgia rush, I hope you will enjoy these short documentaries I have been producing lately :-)

The first video in the series is on the very team that started it all, Colin Chapman's original Team Lotus.



F1 Livery Histories: LOTUS

Hope you enjoy!

Good call. The Gold Leaf livery was indeed the first ever sponsor's livery & very significant in F1 history. However, I don't think makes all that much difference.

Thanks for your feedback, hope you enjoyed the short film :-)

This was actually the first sponsorship livery.

Rhodesian John Love's very pretty Team Gunston Brabham Repco with Gunston cigarette sponsorship at the 1968 South African Grand Prix.


Jim Clark won the race, his last GP, and we all know what that looked like.




Chapman just copied a good idea!

Correct!

IIRC Lotus first showed up with their Gold Leaf livery at the Spanish GP. Full credit deserves to go to Love's team

I've always been interested in liveries as they can do so much for a car, or not, as the case may be. So thanks for an interesting thread and for the link to your YouTube channel.

I just watched the Lotus episode and a couple of things stood out. During the section on the Lotus '79, it was interspersed with footage of a Lotus '91 at Goodwood. As for the Lotus '92, it raced in the 1983 season not the 1982 season. Otherwise very informative.

Thanks mate! Glad to hear you found the video informative, albeit with a couple of flaws here & there. Along with those two points you mentioned, I also referred to Champion as a brake pad supplier, rather than a spark plug manufacturer, so I'll be sure to iron out such mistakes for future videos.

I hope you'll keep following the video series as it unfolds :-)

I always thought the first F1 sponsorship was the Vanwall Thinwall Special's of the 1950's.
