Formula One 2020

Recommended Posts

New onboard video shows areas of COTA that were resurfaced recently...with varying degrees of success. Unrepaired areas still very bumpy.

Meh. Whelmed bordering on underwhelmed.

We have Ferrari red, the Silver Arrows, the McLaren orange, the old British racing green of Lotus, Renault's yellow ... and Haas ?

Uninspiring and mediocre... perhaps that is perfect for the Haas team.

Yeah and I will never be able to take them seriously as long as they stick with that shit driver lineup.

Keeping Grosjean means they really have no ambition beyond what they've done so far. Gunther might want to win but Gene must be happy to just participate.

Saw that this morning. I hate the non-airbrushed Petronas teal, but this reply seems to indicate the actual car will have it. I hope so.

 

 

 

 

Yeah, the teal stripe is WAY too solid and clunky.  I much prefer the subtle airbrushed look.  Hopefully they work it in there.

 

The red is ok, guess I'll get used to it.

Chinese GP postponed due to Coronavirus (probably not to be rescheduled) and Vietnam GP reportedly in doubt also. Other reports say it's unlikely to be rescheduled.

Test livery, I guess, but I'd love for this to be their actual livery.

I'm not seeing those imgur photos above @wood, which team were they?

Here's a tweet from RBR, livery looks basically the same to me I guess?

Welp, other than going matte, which I love, that's a step backward in terms of livery, imho.

Looks huge, like the Mercs have been. Hope that's not where the similarities stop...

I am pretty ok with that Mclaren livery.

The side shot vs the 3/4 front shot is interesting though. It looks nicely proportioned from the side and a Merc style boat from the 3/4 shot.

Well they kept the solid stripe. Don’t like it as much but it does look better here than on the livery reveal car.

I do think most of the Mercedes changes are under the skin this year.

I guess I'm just one for nostalgia because I almost never think livery changes are improvements. And so far that's the case this year as well.

I dislike the McLaren change the most.

Yep. Both McLaren and Mercedes went noticeably backward with their liveries this year.

I even like Ferrari’s less than last year, though it’s still really similar.

Yeah Ferrari just seems to miss it year after year, after having some amazing , clean liveries in the past. They don't even really seem to care. They have so many sponsors, the car is like a rolling billboard.

Completely agree re: Renault. Just great imho. But I've heard conflicting reports that it may or may not be a testing livery as well. Shame if it turns out that way.

Mercedes solid teal stripe is terribad.  Like, a 3rd grader on MS Paint bad.

I like the Alphatauri-- a lot-- but I don't like it as much as STR's livery from the past couple of years. That was just beautiful.  But I'm all for simple and clean and Alphatauri nailed that for sure.

McLaren just continues to look bad.  Maybe it's the sheer size of the new cars compared to vintage, but the papaya orange just doesn't work on these cars.  And mixing it with the weird blue doesn't help.  Looks much more indycar than F1 car IMO.
