Yeah. THIS IS A COOL SPOT, BRO!


If I'd won the EuroMillions, I'd have given some of it to HRT with the intention that their sidepods were emblazoned with "Peniston Oils"...

No, on the engine cover, so when the engine cover is taken off the word 'arse' is on prominent display in a semi-amusing manner :lol:

Better that that - the positioning of the words on the Top Gear BMW had it showing the full "arse biscuits" rather than just "arse". Someone at TGHQ had been watching too much Father Ted, I suspect...

If it was just black and orange or black and red... Greatest ever, the problem is that as a trio this is pretty bad.

Most liveries that are supposed to look terrible look okay to me (the shape of the car is way more important to me than the livery), but I can make an exception for those.

I'm doing 2006 onwards:

2006 Toro Rosso - Looked only chaotic.
2007 Renault - Could have been great without the orange
2008 Force India
2009 Renault
2010 HRT - If you don't have any sponsors anyway, why not design a nice paint scheme?
2011 HRT - This could have been you.
2012 Sauber - I like the team, but this year's livery was boring and ugly. Why can't they use Telmex colors?

Not really. I for my part consider the 2010 livery a lot better than that pseudo-artsy mess they came up with in 2011 and prefer it to the not bad, but not thrilling either, 2012 livery.

There's been far worse even within NASCAR and F1 where terrible looking cars are common due to sponsor demands.

The thing about Toyota in the years Half Schumacher drove for them was that they had a driver with a yellow helmet in a red-and-white liveried car, which I thought looked quite good. Sadly it was nowhere near as successful as the combination it mirrored! :)

Yay. Reviving another thread :)


If you want side on images of the cars without having to search (most of)them up yourself, I reccommend this website: http://www.fijen.net/f1/teams/index.html

It has most F1 Liveries from 1950 to 2014 :)

Re: Worst F1 Liveries

Post by TheFlyingCaterham »

And these are my least favourite liveries from each team (using the Fijen site)

1986 & 1990 AGSs. Just not much detail on both of these cars
Both 1979 Alfa Romeos. The only meh liveries in a pile of good ones.
1983 Arrows. Cos its pretty much blank.
1982 ATS. SInce when did yellow and white go together?
1986 Benetton. Same case with Alfa Romeo
1972-1974 Brabhams. Just white with only 1 or 2 noticable decals.
Brawn. Will be skipped as it only has 1 livery. 1 that I dont mind.
BAR. The liveries were pretty much all the same, except 1999, which I actually like. Plz don't kill me now.
1970-1971 BRMs. Just a couple of decals slapped on on a white background.
BRP. Once again, only 1 livery.
2014 Caterham. The green and yellow liveries looked quite nice to me, but this one loses because of the lack of yellow and the lack of variety in the livery.
1954 Connaught. The 1952 version looks just slightly better than the 54 version because of the yellow strip.

Cooper. Theyre all the bathplugging same....
1988 Dallara. I dont mind the Dallara liveries, but there was a lot of free space on the Dallaras. The 1988 Dallara was the most obvious culprit.
Eagle. Same case as Cooper, but only 2 cars instead of 10
1979 Ensign. Its a fully white car. Just only in black.
1964 Ferrari. If its not red its not a true Ferrari.
2008 & 2009 Force Indias. I quite like the Force India liveries, but it took 3 years to perfect it.
Fittipaldi. Hard choice, cos I like all of the liveries, but I have to choose the 1982 Fittipaldi.
Gordini. They're all bleu. All fricking bleu. Not that thats a bad thing :P
1977 Hesketh. This pushing the limits :P Even more than the original 1999 BARs.
2011 HRT. Put your opinion on our shitty livery here now!
2007 & 2008 Hondas. I chose this cos of the sponsor choice. I will now explain from the view of Honda. In my words

Honda: We have a sponsor [Earthdream] that wants to stop us wasting petrol. We will help Earthdream by wasting petrol. Perfect, innit?

Anyway, let's get back to topic :)

2003 Jaguar. Hard choice here, considering the liveries are more or less the same.
1995 Jordan. Vice versa of Force India, as the livery started off brilliant, it just got worse. Until 1996, where we get the golden Fredd- I mean Jordan.
Lancia. There is only one, and it is the same livery as Ferrari's cars. That said, pretty much everyone ran in their country's colours at that time.
1994 Larrousse. Someone just stepped back 700 years into the past.
1984 & 1991 Ligiers. If it's a Ligier, it must be blue or blue and white, not blue and red, and blue and black.

1992 Lola: Just bland
1971 & 1991 Lotus's: Perfect way to ruin an awesome car. The 1991 one had messed up logos and the 1971 car just didnt look liek a Lotus.
1992 March: This livery just stepped back 30 years
Marussia: ITS TOO HARD TO CHOOOOSE!!!!! *brain overload*
Maserati: Liek most of the constructors in the '50s, all the cars looked the same through several years...
1971 Matra: Messy car = Messy livery
1966 McLaren:
2010 Mercedes: Black logo on the Mercedes Grey just looks ugly
Midland: Only 1 livery...
2000 Minardi: Your attempted clone of yourself has mutated, Jordan
1990 Osella: Hard choice, TBH
Penske: Once again, they're both the same
Prost: I just went over this with Penske, YOU DONT HAVE TO LOOK THE SAME.
2005 Red Bull: I would've nominated the 2009 Red Bull but the shine is just the drawing of it :P
2007-2009 Renault: These liveries are effING bad
2010 Sauber: It just doesn't look good '__'

1977 Shadow: That is very bright for a shadow...
2006 Spyker: Basically the Midland, although they did take over the team for the last few rounds. Oh, I picked this out of 2 cars :P
Stewart: All the same yet again
Super Aguri: The only one I liek is the 2007 one.
1976 Surtees: Liek a couple of cars on this list, this livery suffers from WHITE BLANKNESS.
Talbot: Its bleu. The only livery is bleu.
1973 Tecno: It doesn't have the Martini stripes liek its last livery
1985 Toleman: Hard choice ^_^
2007 Toro Rosso: See Toleman :)
2009 Toyota: Too much white.
1988 Tyrrell: Its not white. ITS BLACK!!!
1957 Vanwall: I'm basing this on the car itself, not the livery, as the liveries are the same ;)
1984 Williams: Not good. Not good.
1977 Wolf: Hard choice, as the liveries were similar

And Im done :mrgreen:

I'll carry on from where I left off

Change to 2000: Minardi was the worst in my opinion, I really don't like that livery, and that shade of yellow in general.

1997: Tyrrell - Not that it was in any way bad, but it was slightly duller than Stewart
1996: Tyrrell - Same as 1997
1995: Jordan
1994: Larrousse's Kronenbourg livery/Pacific
1993: Lola or Jordan
1992: Brabham's pink and blue livery
1991: Larrousse
1990: Onyx - Wasn't that bad, but all the liveries that year were good
1989: Tyrrell with the Camel sponsorship

Whoever nominated Richard Kaye's 1995 BTCC Mondeo, get out - I loved that livery. :P

In fact, I cannot think of a single Super Touring car with a livery that I ever disliked.

Not my favourite livery, but I don't think it's really horrible. ;)

There's been far worse even within NASCAR and F1 where terrible looking cars are common due to sponsor demands.

2014- Caterham: It's quite hard to develop an ugly or lacklustre green livery. And they got it!
2013- Williams: Another challenge: create a blue and white livery that doesn't suit that well. Checked!
2012- Sauber: In a year of good level of liveries, this one stands out because it doesn't stand out.
2011- Marussia: I don't know why, it just annoys me a lot.
2010- Sauber: No sponsors, a great chance to put on a staggering livery. But, c'mon, it's Sauber...
2009- Force India: They were still pursuitng a perfect mix between green, orange and white.
2008- Honda: No offence meant, I loved the 2007 Earth-Honda, but they screwed the idea up altogether for the following year.
2007- Spyker: BRIGHT ORANGE, see and throw up.
2006- Toro Rosso: The first version of the everlasting artsy bull.
2005- Jordan: It looked so poor, so blank, so... Jordan in 2005.
2004- Minardi: Meh
2003- Trust Minardi: Meh
2002- BAR: White cars used to be absolutely lacklustre. This one is a classic example.
2001- Benetton: Ok, I was tired of Mild Seven back then
2000- Benetton: I was tired a long time ago
1999- Williams: Paint it red wasn't enough. They had to splash a bit of bright blue on the rear-end.
1998- Williams: It was a year of good liveries. The problem here is sheer tradition.
1997- Tyrrell: Xena.
1996- yellow Forti: It was a sick (and sickening) car.
1995- Sauber: First Red Bull car wasn't a remarkable one
1994- Tyrrell: Cruel year, I enjoy basically all the liveries used then. Chose this one because white used to be a punch in the creativity.
1993- Jordan: Sasol only worked out in 1994.
1992- March: That Leyton House blue just got too old and tiresome.
1991- Benetton: In between the coloured scheme of the 80s and the Camel layout. No, thanks.
1990- Middlebridge Brabham: Hiragana?
1989- white Eurobrun: God bless Jagermeister! The car started to look a bit more professional after that.
1988- Brazilian Osella: Remembered only by a few, don't feel particularly proud of this.
1987- blue Osella: Many competitors for this prize, but Kélémata knows how to fare well in this sense.

Too lazy to list more.

My ugly car award 2004-2014
2014: Force India - Euuch, disgusting! People think this is a good livery?
2013: Sauber - It's soo gray. At least the contrasting black & white of previous years looked ok.
2012: Marussia & Caterham - While HRT had one of my all-time favourite liveries, and changed look every year, its backmarker contemporaries went ugly same old, same old.
2011: Williams - incredibly uninspiring. They continued with similar liveries for two more years, amazingly.
2010: Virgin, Hispania, Lotus, Toro Rosso - a year with some bad ones. All the bottom four were hard to pick between them.
2009: BMW Sauber - from one of the prettiest of the previous year to the ugliest of '09.
2008: Toro Rosso - an excellent year for liveries, so I'd say this is the ugliest, being regularly uninteresting every year.
2007: Honda - I didn't initially think the car was that ugly, but looking back on it, this is the only thing that looked worse than the Ferrari that year.
2006: Honda - who remembers that livery? I don't.
2005: Minardi - It's like the 2012 Sauber concept, except all the wrong aspects.
2004: Sauber - That blue and turquoise idea very much depended on your mood. In 2004 it really sucked.

But then again, that's just my opinion, man.
Murray Walker at the 1997 Austrian Grand Prix wrote:The other [Stewart] driver, who nobody's been paying attention to, because he's disappointing, is Jan Magnussen.
Felipe Nasr - the least forgettable F1 driver!

My Livery Reject of The Year 2000-

2000: BAR - Silver bits weren't contrasting enough with the white to stand out
2001: BAR - Second case of bland white livery
2002: BAR - Triple champions, and that isn't even counting the 1999 zipper car!
2003: Toyota - BAR managed to get their act together with some more color, but this is just... meh.
2004: Jordan - Gloves and details. Details... HEY! MOVE!
2005: Sauber - Something really puts me off about that nose for some reason...
2006: Super Aguri (SA05 and SA06): Plain white livery and a similar color scheme to Toyota (and not Honda, your parent team) is not gonna fly
2007: BARcode Ferrari and Wings For Life Red Bull - What a time to have eyes. First the eyesore barcodes... and Wings For Life? More like Vomit For Life.
2008: Barcode Ferrari - Might as well have placed warnings all over the car like in that one Top Gear episode.
2009: Renault - So many thINGs wrong with this livery.
2010: Late-season HRT - The early-season white nose version complemented the rest of the car well, but not the late-season red-orange nose.
2011: Sauber - We remember the 2010 BMW Sauber Ferrari for being plain, but this is also quite plain, and in a year of good liveries.
2012: Marussia - Nah.
2013: Marussia - See Jordan 2004
2014: Caterham - Just green isn't gonna cut it
2015: Manor Marussia (early season) - Jordan lives on... through Manor Marussia's blandness
2016: Renault - I preferred their 2019-20 yellow
2017: Renault - With Toro Rosso getting a good livery for once Renault have nowhere to hide with more or less a repeat of '16
2018: McLaren - Too much papaya for my liking.
2019: Williams - Toothpaste tube on wheels
2020: Williams - Not as toothpaste-y but still plain
2021: Williams - A year of good liveries, just don't like this as much
2022: Williams - Meh

If liveries from non-championship races and the British F1 Championship are allowed then this Theodore Racing Wolf doesn't excite me at all. Looks too much like a poor man's JPS Lotus if you ask me.
