Well you say that but I have seen fan mock ups of the Orange livery that looks miles better than this!

Mclaren do seem to be running out of sponsors, there's a lot of empty space on that car.

Should have had more white on it. Still, big improvement on their previous livery which looked like an edgelord teen had designed it in Photoshop.

The differences on the fins and rear wings on these unveiled cars so far is very interesting.

Interesting to see Ferrari have a T-wing on their sharkfin, quite unique sidepods too. Not a fan of the look of either solution, but performance gains take priority.

It apparently set a lap time of 58 seconds in damp conditions at Fiorano. 55.999 seconds is the current record in the F2004 with Schumi behind the wheel.

The new McLaren looks good IMO, I was getting bored of their old colours.
It also explains why when I went for a run past their HQ this morning their sign was lit up in orange instead of white.

The air intakes on the Ferrari are odd, I'm really liking that there are lots of ideas and play across the grid.

Yup. Rules should have enough play that people make different solutions to them.

New Haas spotted at a filming day before they've officially unveiled the car.

That shade of grey. :dread:

I quite like the McLaren. I'm surprised Haas don't have some kind of red, white and blue colour scheme. That kinda Airfix grey doesn't look great.

Ron Dennis had a vision of McLaren as a British Ferrari. It would seem the new owners have a different vision. :dread:


Yeah the McLaren livery is such a missed opportunity. The black/orange pattern looks so gooseberry fool. Make it all orange!!

I think, as with previous years, the liveries are generally poor. New livery designers needed.

It's amazing how new look cars can get me excited over a new season.
