The place for anything and everything else to do with F1 history, different forms of motorsport, and all other randomness
by F1 Livery Histories 13 Jan 2018, 05:01
Hello everyone. I'd like to share with you a new youtube channel called "F1 Livery Histories" which catalogues the different paint jobs, colour schemes & sponsors adopted by different Formula One teams over the years.

The first video in the series is on the very team that started it all, Colin Chapman's original Team Lotus.

Good job on the video, especially with the editing, something I find most F1 YouTube content to lack.

Also, your link was kinda off in your post, so I fixed it. Here's the link to the video.

Just remember to use the following format next time you post links here:

Code: Select all
[url=your_url_here.com]Text here[/url]

My friend raced in a 400 metre relay despite one small problem.

She had pneumonia

I'm not even joking.

Great job. You're amongst major geeks here, so if you need any assistance in not missing one-offs (e.g. McLaren's Löwenbräu sponsorship in 1980 or Ligier's Gitanes "art car" of late 1993), one of us is bound to mention it.

Maybe you could do another Lotus video with all the private entries at some stage in the future?

Thanks for the feedback I really appreciate it!

And many more thanks for the advice on how to post video links correctly, I've fixed the link in the OP.

I definitely appreciate the fact I am amongst F1 geeks here on GP rejects. I have a lot of respect for this forum & consider the posting quality on here to be nothing short of excellent. I have long visited this site & have enjoyed not only the forum content, but also the the articles found here, ever since the site was called F1 rejects. I certainly hope anyone who stumbles along this video series on GP rejects enjoys it, as I am having fun making these videos.

Yeah, I was kind of fortunate that Team Lotus didn't have all that many one-off liveries, which made the research a little easier. Some other teams, Tyrrell for example (video coming soon), required a lot more research due to a constant fluctuation of sponsors.

Taking a look at Lotus cars entered by privateers over the years sounds like a great idea too.

I've just been catching up on these - and surely Jordan will be in the pipeline at some stage...

Incidentally, the link to the Stewart video is broken, so here's where you should go instead: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uayQBOqYGPs

Oh yes, can't have a youtube channel on F1 liveries without a special video on Jordan!

And thanks for fixing up that Stewart link, unfortunately the video had been blocked by F1 management & I had to re-upload it. However, since then, the video has been blocked again for a second time. Only problem is I don't know which part of the video is triggering FOM to flag the video. It's weird because none of my other videos have been touched despite being chock full of F1 content.

Best thing to do is upload these to more than one site. Dailymotion and Vimeo, at the very least, and anything else that doesn't have excessive interference - minds.com accepts videos, and there's always Bitchute.

Nice, thanks DITO. I think I might just do that.

I was also thinking of re-uploading the Stewart video to youtube, but mirroring some of the footage to try. Hopefully that will help.

These have started coming up on my YouTube recommendations now. I saw this one before it was even posted here!

Yes! Me too.

We need the Minardi video (and in some lesser extender, the Sauber one)

Keep it UP!

Ps,: In case if you are doing the Minardi video, i could share some data for the, i asume, obscure sponsor from Argentina in the 98 livery (i dont remember so much about the 00 livery)

I'm not a serious person

Thanks guys!

Yes, lots of people have been requesting Minardi, so I will be doing them very soon.

I'd be happy to receive any information you have on Minardi's '98 sponsors. Thank you, I appreciate any help I can get.

Cheers Aguvazk. My email address is [email protected].

In the meantime here is the latest feature in the series, a video on Toyota. Hopefully we'll see them return to the F1 grid one day. I think given the right circumstances they could be dynamite in F1.

I've just seen the latest one of these, and it'll be very popular here...

Good these are being posted here too, funnily enough I stumbled across this series recently on a completely separate corner of the internet. Top work.

I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again - the Stanley-BRM P207 was the best-looking car of the 1970s (a decade not known for its aesthetics, mind) - just a dreadful tragedy that it was such an utter lemon. It couldn't even compete in the Aurora AFX series...

Thanks mate, I'm glad you're enjoying the series. Do you happen to have any requests for future videos?

Quite shapely isn't it? I'm not the biggest fan of the sky blue + white colour scheme, but the bodywork (and the fact it ran with BRM V12 power) was simply superb.

For the record, that was me who suggested Larousse on another forum as a possibility

Ah, I see. Good areas, good areas. ;-)

You'll be glad to know Larrousse is in production & will indeed be next. I learnt about a whole lot of weird situations when doing my research for this video. Let's just say Larrousse are no strangers when it comes to associating with murderers & felons.

Yeah, they certainly had some colourful characters involved over the years. Looking forward to it.

Bowling, Shane!

I'll bet your name is actually Shane. Or maybe Mitchell. It seems everyone in Australia is called Shane or Mitchell these days.
