Here, have some recolours :)


Black & Gold



Black & Gold with some Red to satisfy PDVSA :p



Green & Yellow (an instantly recognisable classic... I hope! :stoned: )



Green & White (1991 style)


These are so much better, and the bottom one in particular is lovely. Nice work!

Amazing that amateurs on the internet can come up with more appealing designs than people who probably get paid a small fortune to do this for the teams. The quality of the official designs, in most cases, is completely underwhelming. Like most things though, its so corporate driven that everyone plays safe. McLaren are a perfect case in point, that livery is so dull it borders on being sleep-inducing.

The only mitigation is that real sponsors may insist on certain placements and that other sponsors' colours must not clash with or draw attention away from their own. They may also isist that the team doesn't use their own placeholder colour scheme for that reason. And fewer and fewer sponsors are putting up enough money to do a full livery and teams won't sell themselves cheap. In that regard I think the teams should get real and accept that they're going to have to lower the cost of title sponsorship.

The Gold Leaf livery is so under-appreciated... speaking from the mouth of an 18-year-old... :cry:

Meh, Lotus liveries are a feast of beauty but to me the ultimate was a 72 in dark blue and gold. The Gold Leaf was OK but call me one of the under appreciators!

You can tell when I've got too much free time... :rotfl:


What if Honda had been the ones to buy Marussia? Here's one guess :p

I really hope McLaren go back to those colours when their Honda engine deal starts.
