HondaF1 livery
« on: February 25, 2007, 09:34:36 pm »
By far the most creative and spectacular F1 livery this year (or even in years)



It's not 100% sure yet as the official launch is tomorrow, but the picture came originally from the HondaF1 website so chances are very great that is it.

I think this is one of them thingies that seriously divide opinions.. at least it will wake up conversation which prolly is its purpose... i personally think a racecar livery should be simple and regognizable... something to tell which car is running in the distance too :)

i think its interesting to look at but I wouldnt go as far to say its a nice race car theme.. so :P Mario :)

I am wondering whats with the recent "enviro/greenie" attitude in car racing.. even A1GP have something going on called think? Not really sure what it is about, was falling asleep during the covereage of the Durban race...and now the F1 Honda.
Isnt it a bit hypocritical to promote awareness of the environment, yet burn fossil fuels at an astronmical rate in the quest for speed, and there for adding more emmisions to the environment?

I have heard recently that the NZ Toyota series is going to be using the new Bio fuel..just not sure if its this year or coming in next season.

...and confirmed today as I expected

@2shedz: If you look at it a bit longer than a few seconds you should see what "it is supposed to be" (it's not that hard, a tip: we all live on it lol)

Marlboro livery --> Mclaren - Honda from 1988 until 1992
Honda was engine supplier and Mclaren was the "team" in fact, a full Honda works team was way longer ago (1964-1968) and it's only from last year they are back as a team (till 2004 the team was BAR, Honda bought them out then)

Hehe, that's Ferrari's 2006 car!

The 2007 Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro car is this one:


Red as usual... only difference is that both wings are also red instead of white last year.

Steiny probably intended the McLaren Honda of '88 - '92:


BTW: Senna was not of this planet... a true alien  :salute:

Yeah indeed, they look so much more simple. Today aerodynamics are key to success rather than engine power like in Senna's era.

i'd like something to add to that..

back then it was engine power, bit of downforce and a whole lot of driver ability.. or non ability (see De Chesaris.. he was always good for a couple of great crashes a season)
