Sequence is wrong. Porsche is black-red-white, Haas is black-white-red.

I think historically Mercedes has done a great job with their livery. I think the silver with the tri-star logo is very nice (2019 Alfa Romeo testing livery took that concept to a new level and I wish they had kept it for the full season). The Patronas teal color fit in very well. But as to the new INEOS red (or black to red gradient)? Not so much. I don't care for it. But you gotta do what your sponsors want! Force India/Racing Point/Aston Martin (or whatever they call themselves these days) know this all to well with their pink cars!

To be honest, I had no idea who INEOS was so I googled them (see that sponsorship is already working! ) And I see they using various colors on their corporate palette. Bicycle team uses the black to red, but America's cup is all black. I noticed the INEOS Grenadier project (again, something I didn't know existed) uses the red in it's website.

i also had to google Ineos

would like to know how much additional web traffic they got after the announcement.

while i really like that Merc signed/extended their sponsorship deal with Ineos and i like that one can infer that at this moment Merc are, for the foreseeable future, planning on staying in F1, i also dont like the colour choice..

something about the green/teal and the red/black on the front wing looks off to me. anyways, im sure i wont even notice after a race or two.

i cant tell if the red star for Niki is still on the engine cover or not (i hope it is).

The Ratcliffe Imeos deal may well lead to something much much bigger in the next couple of years.

I quite like the livery. A little bid of red does something for Mercedes' minimalist look.



There's quite an interesting interview from the BBC, with Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

I cant tell to be honest, but I do know that when it was introduced Toto said that the tribute was a forever move, as was the red Niki Lauda Autograph facsimile on the nose cone.
Quote:
Mercedes will keep the red three-pointed star on its Formula 1 car's engine cover and facsimile Niki Lauda autograph on the nose permanently.

Those livery tweaks and a red halo were adopted for the Monaco Grand Prix weekend in tribute to the team's non-executive chairman Lauda after his death earlier this week.

While the halo colour change is temporary, Mercedes motorsport chief Toto Wolff said the other Lauda touches would stay.

"I'm really happy how we started off this weekend with the red halo, and the little star - which is going to stay on the car forever - and the signature. It was nicely done," he said when asked about the livery changes by Autosport.

I also hope they have kept it s promised.
