We’re yet to see the new McLaren Mercedes livery for 2006, but one thing’s for sure – they can’t do as bad a job as BMW Sauber have.
When Sauber entered F1 in 1993, they were decked out in a fairly classy black livery with small Mercedes markings. Then we had years of Petronas, Red Bull and Credit Suisse all thrown in a mix of colours that would make the Wiggles proud.
When BMW bought Sauber last year, there was hope of a fresh new livery. A livery with a bit of style. Unfortunately, it looks like the same person is responsible for the look of this years car. The result is plain and emotionless. Certainly not the sort of thing that will help sell more motor vehicles. Why can’t some people realise that an F1 car is a canvas that can be used to create a masterpiece?
