  • In that regard, I found it baffling that Sauber Alfa Romeo chose to go with a white and red car that looked so similar to the Williams livery that had been in use for a few seasons.  Odd decision, hardly made their car stick out.  Apart from the fact their car was mid pack and the Williams miles behind.

    Even Red Bull does a great job of distinguishing RBR from STR, and both cars look great.  For years the STR looked better, but it's become much more plain, still good, but not as exciting.

    It must've been hell trying to follow the sport when all the cars were running sponsor free with national colours!

  • So .... don't get used to saying "Racing Point" quite yet, as it could change once again, before the first green light in 2019.  I think we should stick with "Force WhaaaaatEVVVVVVERRR!!!" until we hear a final, FINAL decision on the team name for next season.

    True. Slip streaming, late braking, balancing grip and power.   :good:

    And when a driver could take not the best car and win.

    Finishes like the 71 Italian GP

  • I hope the team don't wait too long to cement the new team name for 2019?

    I'm sure you are all up to speed on this, but here is a brief history of their transitions ...

    Jordan Grand Prix
    Midland F1
    Spyker F1
    Force India
    Sahara Force India
    Racing Point F1
    (2019 .... ???)

    Best Regards,

    They also answer to Team Silverstone and Team Awesome... ...but I have been known to call them "Jordan/Midland/Spyker/Force India/Racing Point/whatever they're called this week".

    They also have a sense of humour Alia,  :good:
    try calling Red Bull, Stewart GP or Jaguar racing they look daggers at you.  ;)

    Well each to his own.  ;) 
    I often wondered who followed such well funded but unsuccessful teams.  :tease:

    For me Paul(sorry)Jackie Stewart's foray into F1 team ownership failure was only eclipsed by Alain Prost's efforts.
    Shame as I really rate both of them as drivers.   :(

    Stewart's biggest 'mistake' was thinking he could run an F1 team without tobacco sponsorship (in a pre tobacco ad ban era).  If you're going to fail at F1, surely that's the best way to do it?
