I welcome more color on the grid  :up:  I like it.

 

This year we have a variety of liveries  :up:  :up:  :up:  :up: There is only green missing in this respect.

I like the pink.

 

My personal taste would have liked a bit more black and/or white in there. See Lucas Auer's DTM overalls, which look great.

Still better than McLaren.

 

Well done FI for being different and remembering that F1 cars don't have to = corporate blandness.

I proudly rock my pink shirts, pink Chuck Taylors and pink Bow Tie. I do not see either making me less manly what ever that mean, Force India can and should go racing in Pink and be proud doing so.

Don't like it, F1 cars are supposed look masculine, manly, bold, daring, strong etc. this livery makes it look dainty and anything but those things.

 

Just checked the rulebook, and I don't see any of those particular caveats.

 

Or in other words 'says who?'

Are Frenchmen so uncomfortable with their sexuality that they can't wear a bit of pink?  Lame.

Of course, and that's fine. Though human perception works on differences a lot, so this one may just make the others look more mean. Win-win :)

I don't get the pink, since blue seems to be the main colour in BWT's website.

Maybe it would have looked better in blue & white but pink is definitely something different.

It's obvious that this livery is working: it has already managed to bring the Force India thread to the top of the forum, what is what the team and the sponsors are looking for.

It will not be atrocious, but won't stand out as Renault or McLaren.

 

So we have:

 

►►►►►►►►►► Silver, black and teal; 

►►►►►►► Red and white; 

►►►►►►►►►► Matte dark blue, red and bright yellow; 

►►►►►►►►► Metallic blue, red and chrome; 

 White with blue and red accents; 

►►►►►►►►►► Yellow and black;

►►►►►►►►►► Soft pink;

►►►►►►►► Orange, black and white;

►►►►►►►►►► Gun metal gray and dark red; and

►►►►► Blue, gold and white.

 

Maybe the days of corporate blandness are gone? Nahhh...

It's almost a shame they haven't renamed their team name but i guess they're not being classified as a title sponsor.

cars are supposed to be fast.

 

I don't see why Susie Wolff should have looked at any of the cars she has driven as "manly" or masculine. A new sponsor on an F1 car? They payed for it. as in PAYED. Plus it is a good livery too.

Yes, men can't drive pink cars... :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

 

It should have had dinosaurs painted on it, or a Power Ranger, or something else that is super manly, for the big boys driving it.  :rotfl:

Pretty in pink. That's brilliant, I mean matte, VJ.
Wonder if all partners dig it, it should attract bubblegum sponsorship.
I like what they've done on the fin, looks fast, finfastic.

Interesting that a company like BWT (last available annual report from 2015: employees: 3.276; turnover: 535.300.000 €; EBITDA: 49.000.000 €) is able to make such a big sponsor deal, that a midfield F1 team even changes their livery. Or FI is desperately needing money.

FI is always in desperate need of money. Though, they're continually punching above their weight for the past several seasons imho.

At the risk of diving into a bit of a Freudian swamp, the cars are usually described as female.

Some of the responses in this thread are hilarious. Colours mean whatever you want them to mean, they intrinsically mean absolutely sod all! I like the livery, it's unique and out of left field.

 

Besides, if we must label colours, pink was seen as a "masculine" colour until around the 1920s. Racing drivers of that era were also seen as very "macho" or "masculine" - by power of deduction, this is the most masculine of all the liveries on the grid  :p
