    I had no actual expectation of it, but I really hoped that Merc would come up with a more interesting livery. So. Boring.

    I'm going to wait until I see the Red Bull and the new TAG livery before I pass judgement

    So far I'm liking the McLaren best too :)

    McLaren livery is terrible. Looks like a Spyker or some IndyLights team.

    Of course not, just interested :)

    Mine.

    1. Jordan 191 (7up)
    2. Ferrari 640 (very simple, but stunning)
    3. JPS Lotus (85)
    4. Leyton House March
    6. Silver Arrows Mercs of the 50s

    After I wrote my list I realised all these cars are just one plain solid colour with decals :)

    I think the Red Bulls always look decent too

    Red Bulls vary quite a bit for me, but they rarely look bad.

    Nice choices Butch

    You bet me to it, but nice to see a couple of mine in there.

    I read an interview with Gary Anderson recently and the Jordan was designed by just 3 people in their spare time between F3000 races :)

    Nothing tops that Jordan 7up livery.

    Most recently, the Williams Martini car gets on the list.

    Honorable mentions, I always like the Leyton House and the JPS lotuses in the Senna era.

    STR and RBR showed their cars. Cars' livery is pretty different and now really easy to tell apart.

    Yeah but the red bull looks identical to last year.

    This guy did a mock up and it looks fantastic.

    Way too early first impressions but that 2nd year option at Mercedes isn't looking too likely right now for Bottas.

    The new Red Bull nose is interesting.

    Great report on the development of the merc.

    Even more ominous. This season isn't even going to be close.
