With all the cars now unveiled it’s good to see that quick visual identification at a distance, looks like being easier than it has been for some time with teams taking advantage of a much wider palette of colours.
I think the paint job on the Toro Rosso is very striking and I think portrays the bright and sparkly image they want to convey, very well. I also like the Mercedes far more subtle and upmarket finish, which again, I think is successful in portraying the sort of image, Mercedes would want to promote. I am far from convinced that McLaren’s black and papaya orange is the image that would attract a title sponsor unless they are sexy underwear makers.
Eesh . This so called ‘ better ‘ view makes the RB13 look even more like a carnival ride / NASCAR cup/clown car .
As for my overwhelming favorite despite nobody asking ?
Livery wise .. the new Williams hands down without question . The only thing keeping it from an overall win being the hideous Fin and that ubiquitous for 2017 pornographic snout
Overall … not to mention the most likely winner on track … the AMG Mercedes
As for the absolute worst ? Suffice it to say I’m still having nightmares over that classic Harley Davidson Racing [ google cal rayborn for photos ] livery on the 2017 Mclaren . Suffice it to say following Mr Laidlaw’s thread … about the only title sponsor (who in fact cannot afford to be an F1 title sponsor ) McLaren is likely to attract with that livery is The Motor Company . God forbid !
