a Brabham picture show a weird decoration that was described by Nelson
Piquet as a way to hide the Brabham secrets !
Can anyone confirm this story or is this another Photoshop work ?!

No photoshopping in 1983 - the BT52 was "camouflaged" in its, IIRC, only test in the UK before being flow´n off to Brazil for the season opener. There was also a small B/W photo of the "dazzle-painted" car in Autosport - so this is actually the first time I see it in colour.

Probably some mechanics had some fun while they painted the camouflage.

Isn't Piquet helmet also "black" painted as well ?! That's really weird.
I remember another pic of Piquet wearing a balaclava that had been "decorated" with a weird face by some Brabham mechanics.
