    I stand by my previous comment: Denmark is to blame.

    Only f you can prove some kind of connection between Honda and Canada, like my Honda-GTP-vBulletin-Microsoft-Disney-Andersen Estate-Denmark example.

    I see they really pushed the boat out with the livery change, I suppose it looks good (although the ing orange is :yuck:) like Mclaren so they keep it roughly the same..

    Other than the front wing and the removal of the fins in front of the sidepod, i dont see much significant changes made to the R28

    The mirrors have been moved further to the sides. But looks very much the same as the R27...

    The mirrors returned from their adventures in sidepod country. The updated head-protection regs would've prevented any visibility.

    That's why I enjoy seeing new liveries: because it' easier to see the updated designs.

    They're actually using Helvetica, you can tell because the lowercase t's aren't cut at the top like Arial. ;)

    But Ferrari is still using the same as they used last season, so it must be something else.

    I liked the way the morning news reported on the Renault's unveiling, with former World Champion "Ferdinand Alzondo" in attendance ...

    After Alonso stating that Renault need to find at least a second on McLaren and Ferrari, I found a perfect pic to edit...

    Williams livery leaked????

    http://formula-1.updatesport.com/ne...ss/Leak-reveals-new-Williams-livery/view.html

    So I did some hunting and look what I found on the McGregor site... pretty sure that is Nakajima's helmet, livery is not the same as the FW29, or the recent testing liveries. However, the front wing doesnt look like the 30's, so what is this livery?

    EDIT: For two more Photos

    Renault's old ones were far, far move laid-back. Ferrari's didn't have mirrors on the sidepod - they're not as low, nor as far back.

    Genious. Pure genious :lol:

    I like it. A lot. It's like the Aguri livery, in blue.



    Red Bull. Gives you... Err, WTF?

    Bah. He was only half a second behind... And there's a long way to go. When did Alonso become the laughingstock of F1?

    Jeez, I need to get Ralf his seat back :p
