With the introduction of radically revamped regulations in 2017, teams have certainly stretched their technical resources over the winter. However, it’s not just the technical minds that have been made to work, with the graphics department also using up plenty of pen ink.
McLaren have brought an “orange-is-the-new-black” livery to the grid. Toro Rosso have ditched their painted bull in favour of plugging Red Bull’s ‘Simply Cola’ brand. Sauber have gone for gold accents to celebrate 25 years in the sport.
After striking a new commercial deal, Force India become the latest to reveal a striking livery. Like it or loathe it, a pink car is quite a statement. Good for Force India and a great indicator that F1 is in good health.
Red Bull have become the second team to showcase the work of their graphic designers this winter, revealing the livery for the RB12 – their 2016 challenger – at an event in London this evening. With Infiniti having departed and taken their purple paint with them, this year’s Red Bull looks decidedly different compared with its predecessors.
