Should have copied the black Minardi with the red trim.

On the right sidepod of the car there is a grey rendering of the American flag, but it's backwards, with the blue canton on the left instead of the right.  I see this from time to time.
Can our American friends (or anyone 'into' flags) explain why the American flag is sometimes presented backwards?

PS, the car looks nice, hopefully it's distinctive on the grid


This tell's why on planes and the shuttle. Maybe Haas applied it
to cars.

That's pretty cool.  I can respect a flag code that gives a sense of speed!

Hello 2012 Renault! *waves*

Ohhh.....cringey unveil. I particularly liked the "huge round of applause" from the audience of about 15 people! Cars good, reveal was underwhelming.

Were the rest of them thrown out for violating dress code?

I liked it! Spend the money on the car, not the reveal.  :good:

Except they can't agree on a colour scheme, front and top Black/Gold, sides and rear Black and silver...ish.  :D

That's what happens when you only collect half the going rate for Williams car sponsorship.  :DD :DD

It still looks like an AGS to me.  Haas will be hoping that it's a lot faster.

Hopefully on aerial race footage, the HAAS doesn't appear pure black, as I am not sure how well the Rich Energy and other text, will show along with the gold/bronze mirrors and small touches around the bodywork?

What ever the reasons or coincidental similarities, I personally think that the black, gold and white work very well and as far as "looks" are concerned, every other team will have to go a long way to have a better looking car (that includes Williams too Luke!!  ;) )

I do not know why I am quite so biased, but Williams just needs to launch a car, any car, and it will be my favourite looking car that year  :DntKnw:  It's bizarre, I know! 

Problem for Haas is, simply going with any black and gold is going to make the car look like a replica of the JPS livery.  It is not bad by any means, but it could have been 'wow' and I do think it will look lost on track as there is too much black.

On a serious note (I know, a rare commodity from my end lately).

I would love to see Williams revert back to the livery of the Prost/Hill era ... that looked "the business" back then.  Of course, this is once they sort out their aero and get some more horses in the boiler!!!!

Best Regards,
Cal :)

Most significant thing I take away from that video is Günther’s new hair piece. :crazy: :crazy:

I know what you mean, Luke. I feel that way about Haas.

Günther had to get a new rug, Scott. The old one flapped in the breeze & the stewards banned it as a movable aero device.
