I think we'll have to wait for the team's real livery. :D
I think the FIA F1 livery is terrible. :roll:

Absolutely agree the livery does it no favours at all.

Quick google search brings up this though

Much more appealing.

Initially I didn't like the new shape but in the Mercedes livery it actually looks very good I think :!:

It looks alot better than the current cars wich are dog ugly(sorry dogs, I don't mean to degrade your looks that bad). Now fix the sound as the current cars sound as bad as they look.

And the previous 10 years we had to endure were designed by Pablo Ruiz Picasso :)

Sorry Picasso fans for the insult :)

Yeah, but that's mostly because of the wings. They will never end up looking like this so end up more normal looking and less Dali :-) The proportions are an improvement over the current crop as far as I can tell so I'm all for it. Shockingly I'm even getting used to the eyesore that is the halo. Not sure what's going to happen with the wheels though. The 18'' rims need some getting used to. They feel like oversized bling rims on some rapper's SUV. Those disc covers in the pictures above hide that. Are they allowed again?

Yes, they're allowing the wheel covers again.

F2 has run 18" wheels for the last two years and you don't really notice them after a while. The wheels shown in the fantasy art though are way too big for what they'll be running.

So, I guess we're never going back to a Lotus 79 or 126C2 kinda thing anytime soon, huh?
