Well, since watching a certain Nick jr. kids series on tv with my youngest recently, I had this thing I wanted to tell you Joe:
You were/are always in praise of what Disney’s Cars generated in interest, Well, check out Nickelodeon jr’s. “Blaze and the monster machines”. The human sidekick to Blaze (AJ) has a -at least in my eyes- cunning resemblance to Wehrlein.
I won’t post a link but if you google “blaze and the monster machines AJ” then you’ll get to see it. Blaze is much the same as Dora: somewhat educational, yet still fun for kids. And AJ, well, he just looks an animated Wehrlein 🙂
Awaiting moderation, let me explain.
I was just imagining Bernie being summoned to CVC headquarters to elaborate on his senile remarks on F1, e.a. talking down value.
Fact is that Bernie had navigation problems with a High Court revolving door late 2013 (very funny video)
Apparently Brits have never heard the term “dress for success.” For all its techno wizardy, the sport’s marketing efforts are amateur hour and often stunningly thoughtless. It always amazes that, despite livery schemes being the cheapest aspect of the car, teams almost universally seem to give little effort to the most visible facet of their operation. No matter how bad the team, if the colors are cool people will wear your merchandise and share images of your car.
I love the new Manor logo, it’s perfect. The livery and color scheme are pretty good as well.
Joe, slightly off-topic, do you know who typically designs liveries, uniforms etc for the teams? Is it a position within a team, or do they hire outside firms? I’ve been designing this type of stuff for most of my life as a hobby (25+ years), and I very seriously want to get involved in this aspect of motorsports as I feel like I have something unique to offer, but I’m completely lost as to how to go about it.
