Heh you're right, I never looked at them that way. I liked the Winfield Branding in '99 ('98 less so) but I am used to White/Blue Williams.

It's actually a perfect Brabham tribute because it's even sponsored by a computer company

I want to see some E-cig company sponsor a Formula-E car.

There's been a couple in Indycar, GRC and BTCC so it's only a matter of time.

Different thing but way back Williams carried Nicorette for a while.

I'm very much a minimalist which is why I think the BrawnGP car will always be my favourite looking car. It just looked so gorgeous. Added to the fact Button was driving it I pretty much spent 2009 with a constant boner.

You couldn't be more right if you tried.

In the same vein, the 91 Jordan was a looker too.

I don't know if it shows up in photos, but the shade of blue the Prosts used in 1998-2000 was amazing.



Too bad they were terrible cars.

they were a much nicer shade of blue than the Ligiers, I have a 1/18 of one of those cars and it's a beautiful blue.

[edit] the old 2009 Toyota wasn't too bad either, I always liked the red/white and Panasonic of those a little.

helps that that's possibly the most aesthetically pleasing car design in Formula 1 history, certainly for the last 25 years or so.

The fluorescent wheel covers were the icing on the cake for the BGP001, then they added a sponsor with a different shade of yellow and it all went downhill

Yeah, everyone hated that at the time (mostly because the idea was stupid as gently caress), but I always particularly dug the red ring around the airbox. Kinda' visibility-warning-stripe-thing-ish. This is also one of those "I know this opinion is objectively wrong and indefensible, but..." things, but I kinda' liked the grooved tires too. To me they just looked more abstract and sci-fi and generally... future... than slicks.

Yes I'm aware I'm dumb.

Also god those front wing spoons and organic-curve rear wings were sexy.

On that note, it's funny how people's sense for these things works. I remember--at least where I was hanging out at the time--before the 09 cars came out, everyone talking about how ugly the cars were getting with all their areo bits and whatnot, the F1.07 and F1.08 in particular. There were a lot of threads in forums where those two cars caught a lot of flak aesthetically. Now you often hear the F1.08 mentioned as one of the favorite cars of the era.

What's amazing is how the cars from 2004 to 2008 still look extremely modern day sort of machinery. All current. But the 2009 to now cars just look dated already.

also, mclaren teased the mp4-30 launch on instagram with a photo of an mp4/4 front wing. so let's all read too much into that and assume it's going to be red and white.
