The Unofficial 2019 Livery Competition
 
Liveries in F1 are the source of much nostalgia, discussion - and utter boredom. Many a wonderful racing machine is doomed to obscurity by a livery that seems designed to be forgetful.

Every year, the Autosport forum proves that this needn't be so. How? By participating in the Unofficial Autosport Livery Competition! You can, too!

Because last year's competition didn't see quite as many entries as hoped, we have sought to inspire returning artists and first-time participants alike by providing the keys to the official "Unofficial Livery Competition" virtual drawing garage; laptops, paper, pencils and F1 car included!

If you're running short on ideas, or just need to be reminded to submit your entry, be sure to grab the 1920x1080 wallpaper version here (no text!) and use it on all your devices.
 
Will this year be the one in which Disgrace (two second places) or Anja (two third places) finally takes the gold? Who knows!
 
Grab those pencils or other drawing paraphernalia and see if you can join Jeeves, TrollHunter, Denaris, Nonesuch, and Owen as an Unofficial Autosport Livery Champion!
 
Before we get started on this year's instalment, let's take a look at some of the previous winners and runners-up.

2018

The 2018 F1 season will go down in history as the first in which the Halo was used. It proved a source of hilarity, frustration and creativity in the competition as well. Defending champion Owen struck gold and emerged the winner after a controversial round of poll-based voting (also organised by Owen).
 
The winner of the competition was Owen, followed by Disgrace, and a shared third place for Nonesuch and Maustinsj.

The competition thread can be found here and the voting thread here. There was even a special results thread, which can be found here.

2017

The 2017 competition saw fierce fighting for the top spots, as a mere two points separated the winner from the runner-up. Anja proved to be the Hamilton to Jovanotti's Alonso, as she claimed the final podium spot on count-back!

The winner of the competition was Owen, followed by Frood, and Anja.

2016

The 2016 competition proved to be one of the more exciting, not least thanks to the participation of a highly controversial design. There were also rumours of massive voter fraud that relegated said design to second place, in which it nevertheless edged out another design on account of getting more electoral first place votes.
 
The winner of the competition was Nonesuch, followed by Disgrace, and DaiMon.

2015
 
The competition started remarkably early this year, in fact it started in December 2014!
 
The winner of the competition was Denaris, followed by Sheepmachine and Anja.

2014
 
This year saw some of the most creative designs to date!
 
The winner of the competition was TrollHunter, followed by rooksby and ReDeYe.

An image of the third placed design was unfortunately not available.
 
The competition thread can be found here and the voting thread here.

2013
 
The competition was mired in controversy right up to the moment of voting! It is said by some that the results are still provisional, but until further notice the results stand.
 
The winner of the competition was Jeeves, followed by Risil (with two separate entries) in second and third.

2012
 
Unfortunately not many designs of this year's instalment have stuck around in this fast-changing online world.
 
The competition thread can be found here.

The Template
 
The template used will be an adapted version of the template created by BWT (Camille) many moons ago, and which has proven an excellent canvas on which to paint.

The adaptation to the 2019 regulations was made by TheGoldenStoffel and kindly provided for use in this year's competition.

amw7e1g.jpg
The template is available in two versions, all with the same bad tyres: JPG / PNG (very big!)
 
You can use at least one of these two versions in pretty much every graphics editor, from Paint to GIMP to Photoshop and anything in between.
 
Please consult your favourite search-engine of choice for help on how to use these programs.
 
The Rules
 
The rules for the competition are simple:

  • The Autosport Forum moderators have final say over what is and is not allowed.
  • Use the provided template. Entries using a different template will not be able to participate in the voting round.
  • Do not change the template. An exception to this is the colour of the rims and the colour of the Pirelli markings.
  • Be creative! Do not copy existing designs - instead adapt them to a new concept.
  • Limit the use of elaborate lighting and shading effects. Let's keep the bar to entry low.

The winner of the competition gets a few congratulations, the honour of calling him- or herself the winner, and the job of hosting the 2020 competition!
 
The Schedule

The competition starts today, on 16 January 2019.
You can submit your entries until 3 March 2019. The deadline is 23:59 GMT on that day.
Voting will then commence and end on 15 March 2019.

The winner will be announced shortly thereafter, in the weekend of the 1000 miles (or 1609,34 kilometres) of Sebring!

Now then: let's see those designs! :up:

That's what you get for copying and pasting.

The days are accurate, it was just the year that was off.

Was, because I've fixed it! Thanks!
 

Just for the record, I had no part in this:

 
This is true. I gathered the notes about each year at the end of their respective little sections, which is perhaps a bit counter-intuitive, but in any case, it does note that there is no picture of the first placed design!
 
If you still have it, I can add it to the post. Maybe you could post it as a plain link to avoid confusion, or via PM. :up:

 

On further inspection, that year didn't have the third places tied as I apparently thought back in 2017 - so I've scrapped danmills' fourth place car from the overview. This should hopefully avoid further confusion.

 

Either way - this just goes to show that the livery competition is always full of excitement and unexpected twists.  ;)

Ladies and Gents, I give you:

 

"Brexit F1" sponsored by Red Bull and powered by Ferrari.

 

The team has a promised budget of £350m per week from 29th March 2019.

 

Its main partners, Red Bull and Ferrari jumped at the chance to be associated, since they both have threatened to leave F1 on numerous occasions but somehow have not yet managed to do so. Also, the management structure at Ferrari seemed to fit very nicely with the team's ethos.

 

Other partners have expressed their confidence in Brexit itself and therefore have been bullish about the F1 team's chances. Dyson have denied that they were interested purely because their products are similarly famous for sucking bigtime. Honda were interested in investing but have settled on a 6 week delay to their decision whilst they watch the outcome of the first race in March.

 

Technical details:

 

- Brake balance is set at 52:48.

- The car has one extreme right wing.

- To prevent the car driving too far into the garage, a backstop has been fitted.

- A lot of hot air comes out of its rear end.

 

Finally, there is no truth to the rumours that the team's trucks may get stuck on the M20 for 6 weeks whilst making for the ferry in Dover...

Please be gentle with me...it's not meant to be serious.  :p

Ha ha ha.

 

Not sure how your Italian engines and tyres will get to the UK in the post-Brexit utopia.

 

As for having shifty Austrians financing you... no way.

 

You need to rethink your power supply. Can't JCB give you the engine and tyres?

Militant Vegan Grand Prix

Team report:

Thanks to a substantial donation by the Tillington, Idsworth and Trent Saboteurs (TITS), we are excited to announce our next move in pushing our righteous vegan agenda- by informing the uninformed across the world as part of the F1 world championship! We’ll make sure all the planes and stuff are bird friendly, and our drivers won’t hit pigeons in Monaco or anything, so that’ll be alright. Chris Packham allowed us to use his picture on the engine cover- at least A Chris Packham did, and it turns out any idiot can spaff money out of Lush when you tell them it’s all vegan stuff you’re doing. Obviously in return for the loads of money that was originally left to him by his Nan and given to us, Keith from TITS wanted us to use his picture of him cuddling a lovely fox on the rear wing. Just goes to show how benevolent all animals naturally are, Keith only needed four stitches after that photo was taken. Here at Militant Vegan Grand Prix, we’re all really excited about the new F1 season and demanding chicken substitutes in the paddock cafe.

True. I think the Dell-Størvik entry of you, NoneSuch, is my favourite up to now.

I need to find some time to get paint started again to doodle my entry. ETA next week-ish.

The Racing Paint GP Team is ready for the coming season.

 

At the long awaited presentation, a new unexpected livery has been revealed. A spokesman for the team explains: "We wanted something new and hired a new upcoming young talent for our design. Bob was given a totally free hand and I think you can see that in final result. He said, he was inspired by the famous Salisbury Mountains."

 

After suffering multiple technical DNFs last year, engineers analysed the car over the winter and found the cause leading to the break downs. "It looks like our problem could be traced back to the electric motors connected to the engine. A new, brushless version will be tested ahead of the season!", says Chief Engineer Bob the Builder.  :cool:
