Fed up talking videogames? Why?

Who do you think will be the WDC and WCC winner for the 2021 F1 season?

I only have 1 sig from Lewis, and i got it in 2002! I was leaving Donington Park when i walked past the Formula Renault's all lined up in a sort of parc ferme and there, stood next to one of them was a very young Lewis, who i recognised from the media coverage he had received with McLaren in previous years. Anyways, we had a brief chat and he signed my programme with a signature so large it covered an entire page!

It can be seen in the following footage at 2:28...

Cheers, more can be seen here:



Filmed these clips in 2015 though, so my signed cards from Russell/Latifi/Kubica & Nico Rosberg aren't present.

excellent race and best use of all the new camera angles which were only mostly seen on the old F1 digital feed which ceased going into 2003.

The Alfa has definitely had its rear portion of its livery flipped colour wise, again like with the Alpha this isn’t a bad thing as the livery was good to start with.

When the 2017 regs made the cars look better, the teams actually started to make an effort with their liveries too.

Think back to how crap the colour schemes were a few years back, and the difference is huge.

And in a surprise to no one the Redbull livery is almost the same as the last one just replacing AM with Honda amd adding on Claro. It would have been great to see them copy the Redbull livery they have on the DTM cars though

Let’s be honest, the only ones which are going to be different are Aston Martin and whoever BWT sponsors (rumoured to be Williams) as they’ll have a bit of pink thrown on.

Probably for the best Red Bull didn't do a special testing/reveal livery this year as their normal racing livery always looks so lame in comparison.

Was it 2017 when they had the fantastic looking digital camo blue one? Or 2018? Regardless that one was fantastic and really should have been ran for the season.

2018. The red stripe 2019 livery was great too.

I still think they should have a car coated in Vanta Black.

Honestly they both should have been used, likewise with the 2015 one, if they’d coloured the body or sponsors in and left the opposite the zebra camo look that’d have been decent too. I can see why they go back to the standard one though, corporate image and all that jazz.

https://www.racefans.net/2021/02/24/ast ... -branding/ dont expect to see any pink on the AM but i guess it rules out the potential for a pink Williams
