Seeing Nic's car I don't get the Williams livery at all. The Ford is branded with all the correct colours for ROKiT but the Williams looks more like a sticker that doesn't go with the rest of it has been slapped on the side.

Anyone else think Haas has all the makings of this....

Came here to put this, but I've been beaten to it.

From everything I've seen this is either a shell comany, a con, or someone trying to build a company from nothing. Several people here have gone on Amazon looking to buy the stuff, I have, not to try it but to see if it exists.

Genuinely think myself that this Storey fella (even his surname makes it sound like a fairy tale) is doing exactly what the Nigerian prince did to Arrows. Sure, Haas have said that Rich Energy have paid the first instalment, but what about the next few?

Is all the black on the Williams to mark the slow death of the team?

I get it now. ROKiT are the title sponsors but they've done the car in the colours of one of the other sponsors products. Sure deodorant from Rexona. Makes perfect sense (to someone)....

Looks like I’m the only one who likes the Williams livery then. Toro Rosso looks exactly the same as last year and the Haas doesn’t have enough gold.

I'm with you, I think it looks good. Reminds me a bit of the 95 Tyrrell, not sure why because it's nothing like it really.

I don't dislike it. I just don't get the mixed messages over sponsors. Seems weird to have the title sponsor as basically a sticker and the rest of the car coloured for a non-title sponsor.

I think the Williams looks great, strange that people are bemoaning the Torro Rosso, when they moved to that livery everyone said it looked fantastic-rightly so. What do they expect now it looks good, for them to change it rotate

Similarities 'without foundation'.



Sure.

It's almost comical how little actually adds up to a legit feeling situation with this.

I'm almost 99% sure that 'logo' probably came from a stock website illustration, in Rich energy's case the designer has just tweaked the vector shape slightly. Either way, it looks terrible on both companies.

To be fair they could paint the the thing pink with yellow polka dots on it, with Noel Edmonds ugly mug on it, as long as it's a better car than last year that's all that matters.
