Dark Blue

Ok.
We now have 4 liveries w/ dark blue
STR
RB
BMW Sauber
Williams
Is this color TV freindly or what?
Also, 4 liveries w/ red
Ferrari
MF1
Toyota
Honda
The Renault will really stand out in this crowd if the keep the same colors.
We can only guess what McLaren(blk, slvr rd?) & SA(rd bl?) will come up with.
Maybe McLaren could stick with the orange

Well the BMW is prodimantly white, and will looks completely the opposite to the other three mentioned cars. The Williams also seems to be a darker colour than the Red Bull and Toro Rosso cars.

As for the red colours, the Ferrari is all red, BAR is mostly white and the Toyota is a mixture. The Midland also features silver and black. There won't be much trouble telling these liveries apart.

I tend to agree with slicktoast.
The schemes seem to land in groups as listed.
True there are diferences but will they be enough on track?

If McLaren keep the orange they will stand out anywhere on the track.
I hope they do keep the orange. Wishful thinking?

Cheers
Peter

The Williams and the BMW liveries, are just opposites. However, the Maccas & Renault shold stand out.

you will probably be able to keep the Red Bulls apart from the Torro Rosso's by their speed

Wasn't it claimed that ToroRosso will be having a radical livery?

You could, but make sure people don't mistake you for flogging pay as you go or anything!

I don't mind Blues and reds but I'd like to see some different colours, although that'll obviously all depend on corporate colurs or particular sponsors.

On that basis these sorts of companies/brands should be tapped up for sponsorship!! Cadbury (their purple looked nice on a 3000 car years ago) Guiness or Terry's Black Magic chocs, Carlsberg (Green?) Fanta (orange, yellow or green) um.. Mcvities Choc biscuits (brown).

Now that lot would give us a bit of variety, although i'm not sure fashion and designer experts would agree with that lot!!

i agree with slicktoast,the liveries are too boring on most cars.i'm really gonna miss looking at all the cars,mechanics, etc..preparing for the race and among the redish whiteish blueish blur spotting the bright yellow jordans and their crew.
i know they wont but i hope the maclarens stay orange

Super Aguri in their ARTA programme uses orange fluo as their distinctive colour, because their principal ARTA sponsor, Autobacs, has its logo in black letters and orange background. During last years (IRL / FRV6 / Japanese GT) they mixed the orange fluo with white and blue.
They might keep this scheme for Super Aguri F1 team, if Autobacs joins them there.

I told this would happen, too much red liveries, too much dark blue... very linear.

Oh, about pink, that's an idea, but colors are usually after sponsors' and I can't remember any company related to that particular color...

Mattel!

I can just see a team with a hot pink livery sponsored by barbie & ken!

Actually, let's not go there.



... But it might attract a wider range of audience - think of all those young'uns sitting up late at night (well, if they're in Australia ) to watch the pink cars race.

Maybe not.

Your suggestion will be happily ignored.
