At the 2:24 mark of the video... Webber, Alonso, Fisichella, Button all in Benetton kits... Flavio could spot talent.

Not a very exciting HAAS livery there but I realize that's their corporate colours. Sky F1 has a vote open right now on the greatest livery of all time. I won't say how I voted but who I did vote for is the current leader :p

Anyway, it's time to get excited about F1 again, it's one of the best parts of spring... let's hope for a tight title fight between the old and new guard...

Good share!

Of those, it's the Jordan 191 for me!

Really odd choices to go into that poll. The Ferrari isn't even the best Ferrari (1995 and earlier is FAR better). The Benetton isn't the best Benetton. The Renault isn't the best Renault.

This is kind of just a placeholder season for me. I'm really looking forward to 2021.

Yep agree. I’d have included the Buzzin Hornets Jordan as well, and the Damon Hill Rothmans Williams (with Sonic feet!) IMHO was a better looking car than the 1993 Camel Williams.

I think the Sonic feet was before Rothmans. That was the 1993 Camel/Canon livery, whilst Rothmans came for 1994. :)

That poll is clearly made by someone who grew up watching racing in the 2000s, but has seen the JPS Lotus so included that too lol.

Ferraris should be darker red, have black wing endplates and gold rims.

Ha you’re right. I still like that car as well as the Rothmans Williams. Agree the all red Ferrari with black and gold is great - I think I had a model of that when I was younger.

You are correct on all accounts!

A quiet place in NY.
Interesting front wings on the 2020’s.

SF1000 looks nice today. Any predictions on which Team receives the first slap from the FIA for using a loophole to their advantage?

Loophole, ban, loophole, ban.... will be just like the 70’s again. ;)

Still too much Marlboro Brandi for my liking, and remains very plain with massive (and not blended) sponsors. We’ll see how it goes in Australia.
