Complete fantasy. Your mistaking of Ligier, Michelin, Gitanes or Alpine for Renault and then being so colossally rude about it is inexcusable.


I don’t think Renault’s colours have ever been blue.

Yeah that's my point. Renault's racing colours are Yellow, Black and White. Any other colour on a Renault racing car is associated with some other entity or simply incidental.

Dark Blue = Rothmans = Williams F1 = your connection?  Consider when these cars came out, the winning Renault F1 cars were mostly a dark blue.


They had blue before Williams ran the team, and Williams didn’t run the rally Meganes.

I think Renault ran a yellow/blue livery for a brief period, primarily in the UK even? Maybe it was only a Renault Sport color, but I am sure blue was never a color in the corporate style at any time of Renault.

He is probably thinking Gordini, which has been owned by Renault since 1968 and moved to Viry in 1969 and acted as Renault's sporting division prior to the RenaultSport brand.

Renault is a French team, therefore most of its racing cars must have been "Bleu France" before the advent of branding, sponsoring and marketing in motorsports c. 1970.

 

Furthermore, the Alpine brand (all of which cars were blue until the mid seventies) was more or less the racing and performance car division of Renault, more than an independent constructor (think AMG-Mercedes). In fact, they were always called Alpine-Renault.

https://en.wikipedia...France_(colour)

 

"Blue is France's national racing colour, therefore several French motorsport teams have used it, including AlpineAmilcarBallotBugattiDelageDelahayeGordiniLigierMathisMatraPanhardPescarolo SportProst Grand PrixRondeauSalmsonTalbot-LagoVoisin. The two notable exceptions are Citroën and Renault: the former has used red and white, whereas the latter has used yellow and black."

 

A lot of people just seems to assume it, but it isnt really true

Cyril said the new livery is an evolution of the 2017 one but that some of its features might surprise... fr.motorsport.com

Edit:

google translate: 

"The livery, yes, there is a little surprise to wait," reveals Cyril Abiteboul Motorsport.com. "I do not want to say too much, we are in the evolution without revolution, for us it's important to install an identity, so we can not do it every year, but there are really different things, a little more vibrating, I think that in a way, we will be even more assertive. "

Usually that means the change will be so slight you’ll need to see the two side by side to notice any difference.

Thinking about liveries and looking back at when the original works team ran, while they always had yellow, black and white, they mixed it up for every car.

I’d take something simple like the 1983 version.

But if we take other hints into account, the 2018 livery might also look like the 2018 FE one (just replace the blue with yellow)  :p

The 2017, matte light-blue version would be stunning

Top one, the orange clash with the yellow, the black and yellow compliment each other.

Those ING liveries are horrendous... especially the 2009.
I hope that was some kind of sarcasm.

Is that a fire blanket, covering another popped Renault?   :p

 

Looking forward to seeing the new car though, interested to see what sort of design cues they have taken from the other teams.  Also I really like their yellow liveries so hope they firmly stick to that.

And, I cant believe I'm saying this, but, the halo is bearable here. Livery is absolutely fantastic.

The livery does look nice, but only from the front in my  opinion. To much black from everywhere else.

Aha they went for 'underwhelming black' as their color for this year. They even made aero cat black, maybe a sign.

What does Red Bull know about cooling requirements that Renault doesn't? Huge sidepods in comparison.

The best looking of the 2018 cars so far, love the livery. Even the halo looks almost cool  :p

Hope they have a good year, time for Hulk to score a podium. And why not Carlos too!

Hope they 'forgot' to bolt on all the bargeboards when they did the photoshoot cause if not ... I 'm not optimistic for them, it's pretty much the only area where there seem to be aero gains to be made

It really is quiet amazing how big the difference is, the renault very basic looking, seems they made it longer but still the sidepods look big
No trix with the lower impact structure
Sidepod very undercut by the looks
The livery very nice though

What does Red Bull know about cooling requirements that Renault doesn't? Huge sidepods in comparison.

Are we sure this isn't last year's car with a new paintjob? It looks extremely underdeveloped and a lot bulkier than the Red Bull.

Is that more of a day-glo yellow too? I was hoping for more yellow than last year's car rather than more black.
