The McLaren and the RB are amazing. I really wish we would see some of your designs on track one day. Keep it up :up: !

Me too. Send it to Claire.

Agreed. The Williams design is a winner.

Some new concept liveries for 2015 I made !

These are my favourites. I guess I'm a bit conservative guy so I prefer these to more radical-looking designs like Macca's.

 

Ferrari looks much better when it doesn't have lots of white. Still missing black endplates, though.

 

Lotus is much better black and gold without red.

 

Marussia's livery looks like a classic livery, I like it.

 

And I like that Sauber livery. Different placement of the white stripe makes it look much less dull than this year's car plus that red nosetip reminds me of West McLaren. Plus the big white circle with a red number brings some more colour to the painjob. My favourite of these.

The Marussia and McLaren look great from the sides, though I'm curious how such liveries would handle the transition from the nose to the sidepods.

 

But be that as it may; thank you for sharing these. It's excellent stuff. :up:

I think Ferrari looks better with bit more black on the back. Lotus definitely looks better without the red and I really like that much more stronger cyan color on Mercedes. And that Marussia  :up:  :up:  :up: 
I think Mclaren would look better with just white and red livery, without black/grey/silver on it....,maybe it would be bit boring (since we have seen such liveries with Super Aguri, Toyota and BAR/Honda previously), too bad they cant even try to copy good old Marlboro livery.

That Ferrari livery is gorgeous. Wish they would have one like that. I haven't liked a Ferrari livery in years, if ever! They always seem to be just plastered with stickers on a red background than a nice true design.

This thread never disappoints.

Those two Renaults from the last page are incredible.

Tobacco sponsorship provided some of the classiest liveries in the history of the sport.

 

Never made me want to smoke either, as it happens.

Love the Martini Williams.

 

Not so keen on the McLaren (way too busy for my taste), and think it and the Marussia could be confused with each other fairly easily.

Looks like a Red Bull base.  Fantastic model!  I would love to see it from other angles, such as a profile shot and also the rear.

You are obviously extremely talented judging by the fact that just about every design of yours is better than those of "real" designers the teams employ. Thank you once again.

P.S. The Williams is my favourite of these new ones.

I dunno. I think they're good, but not great. Like, they're not practical. Designing an actual livery is a lot more complicated than you think. It has to match the flow of the car, the shape of the car(diferent things), how it will look while in motion, how it shows off the sponsor logos, whether the brand guidlines/colors are correct, etc etc. So on the Real Williams I like the Martini stripe, but I don't like that the Martini logo is on the stripe. I'd move it to one of the white spaces. But they didn't pay for that much space so...

 

Like, I don't know why everything on the Virtual Williams is tilted. And tilted the 'wrong' way. You're more likely to see things like the McLaren where logos are tilted forward(which I didn't really like when Williams did it with HP.) Total and PDVSA would probably want to be in red on the Lotus, etc.

 

So they're interesting in a fantasy sense but it's kind of like a concept car. Interesting to look at, nice ideas, but if you think the real version of it would still look that way after going through committee...

Golden rule, dog :p

 

BWT does good work. My criticism is more aimed at people that think they'd exist anywhere other than a forum or a video game where you can design it any way you want.

 

Not that the real designs are great. The Lotus is stupid.

i wonder if that's what the rule makers intended the 2014 noses to look like, before the teams spotted the loophole.

Hi folks :wave: My first post on here (wow, didn't realise that I signed up THAT long ago! :eek: :lol: ), I've made a couple of fantasy liveries for Caterham and Haas (of course assuming that Caterham survive and that Haas actually comes into being... :stoned: ) - the templates (Lotus E22 and Marussia MR04 respectively) were made by the user 'aussiemau5' on the now-defunct Robsworkshop forum :p

(Yes, I know Rossi's number is wrong and that they won't be using Merc engines, just roll with it! :) )

Nice work! :up:

An idea I've always had for a livery that I'd love to see carried out: a car in Intel colors using their multi-colored yellow 'processor' stripe. Tried to put it together on Forza for some LMPs but never had the patience. For those who don't get what I'm talking about:

Always liked the look of Intel on cars ever since BMW Sauber ran them years ago. Car numbers 13, 15, or 17 are the obvious choice. :p

Loving that Haas design. Lovely, simple colour scheme, and the sponsors are placed well.

It's pretty far-fetched though. As if RadioShack can afford to sponsor an F1 team, never mind on the engine cover.  :p

I thought about that, but hey, just a minor detail. You could swap it out for Haas themselves.
