Depends if you are looking at the front or the back.

From the rear, white is the more dominant colour.

We'll have to get some proper commentators from snooker then... they can cope with lots of red balls, so should manage a handful of black cars!

Anyway let's enjoying seeing the cars in their colours and look forward to a competitive season, with hopefully some surprises in store
I think the Cupras look pretty smart. Plus a blind git like me should be able to tell the difference between Nic and Goffy at full chat, they're different enough.

As far as I can tell, we have only seen 3 livery reveals that are predominantly black, and one that is 1/3 black?

Of those - they are all derived from the primary sponsor's colours:

AutoBrite - White/Red on Black
RoKIT - White on Black
So to be expected for HARD. to use black as the base for their cars.

Car Gods 54 - Black base, with different colours dependant on product.
So to be expected for Ciceley to use black as the base.

BMW Motorsport - Black base on their global programme.
So to be expected for WSR to use black as the base.

Toyota Gazoo - Red/White/Black.
So to be expected for Speedworks to use a Red/White/Black livery.

Do we expect teams to reject sponsor's requirements because they are the wrong colour? Why is Texaco's black a good livery, but 2021 sponsor's black a less desirable livery?
I'm not saying about teams rejecting requirements or just having colours long bla bla bla. You don't have to over-analyse everything and seek scientific arguments and reasons for everything.

It's just the fact, Texaco or JPS black livery is iconic whereas Car Gods or AutoBrite are not and will not be and this is the end of the topic for me.
Why throwing this pointless argument of teams rejecting sponsors requirements? No one suggested this and no one thinks about it.

It's just a bit surprising that there are so many black (or partly black, whatever really) liveries this year. This is going to be a bit bland, that's it. My argument about Monster Energy and all these comments about Texaco or JPS stem from the fact that these brands are so recognisable that black cars with their logos would look great always. Black cars with some less known or unknown logos just don't make such an impression and are not that recognisable. The end of the topic.
