  • I'm watching the Racing Point reveal live. It's still pink! Pix as soon as I can find one.

    Yes, they strongly hinted a few weeks back that it would stay mostly pink (think I posted this somewhere?).

    To be honest, I get really annoyed with Red Bull's "one day only" livery, as it doesn't help my needs one little bit!!!! ... I think a couple of years ago, their launch showed a kind of netting/web all over the car, of course, not even close to the more traditional livery, come race day!!

    GRRRRRR.

    On a pleasant note, great job Merc ... like the advancements from last year's look!!   :good:

    Best Regards,
    Cal :)

  • The Merc looks a lot like the Williams scheme in its colour proportions.
    You bet it does.  I didn't fully realise this, until I painted my "little cars" ... all of a sudden, when I reduced the scale to approx. 1/3rd size, the Williams did indeed resemble the Mercedes.  Just let's hope when I start painting the new Merc, I can make them look identifiable to their respective teams!?!?

    Best Regards,
    Cal :)

  • Red Bull are on to you Cal, they want to make your life as hard as possible. 

    Actually, they do have posters on forums, so maybe there is a spy on here  :DntKnw:

  • That sounds about right Luke!  :crazy:

    Now, this angle works well for my needs >>>


    But ... I would like a similar angle for the Merc, as this photo is too high >>>


    EDIT:  I like this angle of the Racing Point too ...


    EDIT: The 2019 McLaren ... not bad.

    Cal :)

  • Sorry Force India ... Racing Point ... Sport Pesa!!!!

    But ... that looks like an explosion in a paint factory (50 tins of pink, 10 tins of white and a sole tin of royal blue).

    Still looking at Renault and HAAS as the best paint jobs of the week so far. Okay, Mercedes is a decent improvement from the 2018 livery.

    Cal :)

  • So ... what can we expect from McLaren's launch tomorrow?

    A) The typical orange beacon, with some new graphics, especially yellow bits from their new sponsor?
    B) Less orange and 1 mammoth red love heart for Valentine's Day ... why not, Red Bull aren't giving us much!!

    Cal :)

  • Not bad McLaren, Not bad!!

    So, essentially, a progressive look from 2018, with new sponsorship and more blue on board.  I thought there would be a hint of yellow somewhere, but there you go, not bad.

    I thought that when I first saw the pictures of the McLaren.
    Can only assume its an area they can exploit outside the heavily restricted boxed off areas the FIA imposes for most of the car.
    We'll find out if it's considered a real gain if we see others jump on the bandwagon a few races in. 

    Surprised it's not Red Bull giving it wings.  :D

  • Is something going on at the front of the safety cell? They seem to have a shroud over the end of the plank.

  • It looks odd to me, the bargeboard stuff looks completely different to the other cars and yes, those odd winglet things are not pleasant.  I feel the livery is a step backwards from last year. 

    It doesn't feel like the McLaren I used to know from the Hakkinen days.

  • You know where I would love to shove these "Special Livery" launches.  If you are going to unveil your car to the world, SHOW US THE REAL ONE!!!!  |-(

    What's funny here, we are accepting the dreaded Halo and finding fault with everything else ... well, at least I am!   :-[

  • I think teams should be forced to launch their cars in the liveries they will race in!

  • I guess technically Alfa haven't yet launched their new car, yesterday was a 'private' (  :DD ) shakedown that had hardcore fans turn up to.  They just 'happened' to put on a fine livery for this event  :P
