    YOUR Favourite F1 Liveries?

    So this is a thread I thought about starting during "lockdown" but never got around to doing it.

    What have been your favourite F1 liveries down the years?

    It doesn't just have to be Ferrari ones, but any team's can be included!

    Despite my love of any of the Rosso Scuderia coloured Ferraris of the late 90s and 00s (Done that way because it looked more red on TV) and they'll always be my favourite I fondly remember the Jordon "Buzzing Hornets" and the Orange Arrows liveries.

    I'm sure there have been more I've liked but those two were from the top of my head.

    What about you? Please include pcitures!

    It's not how start but how you finish.

    The Mild Seven Renault from 2005.

    A little bit off topic but I think the cars from that era (2002-2006) looked more futuristic than what we have now.

    Ferrari 2007 and Benetton 2001. Too close to call.

    Seb wanted to buy an F2004 but it was "too expensive." He also said the F2004 was 160 to 170kg lighter than todays cars.

    Too expensive, wonder how much. My friend who races in european le mans, and is amateur gt driver, bought felipe massas f2008 car. Add to his collection. It stay within the corse cliente, and drives it at ferrari racing days. Who rings up and get Fiorano to himself and bounds round there

    The article did'nt specify the auction price but to Seb's taste it was too expensive. it was one Michael drove and won the championship. Seb was on the sidelines with Charles at Mugello when Mick drove his fathers F2004 around the track. Seb loves the car.

    That's awesome about your friend and Massa's F2008.

    Not quite a favorite but one very memorable. It's actually a "non-livery", if you will. The F1-2001 Blacknose. Class act in those very tricky times, IMO.

    The B186, along with the Brabham BT55, Arrows A9 and other BMW-engined cars in 1986 are the most powerful Grand Prix cars ever built. The B186 in particular, being the most competitive of the BMW engined cars that season could produce 1,350+ hp in qualifying trim, and about 900 hp in race trim.

    The whole Corse Cliente thing grinds my gears. You pay untold millions of dollars to buy the car and you can't even keep it.

    Yeah, but it's the only program out there in motorsport that let's you race their cars......no matter what era. Corse Cliente maintains every vehicle hence the millions of dollars.

    It wasn't the best car but something about it just looks so good. Prost's Ferrari 642.

    Not a livery as such but I loved the late 60s 312 Ferraris with the spaghetti exhausts and gold wheels, and the sound was incredible, as was the V12 Matra of the same era.
