    Is this the world's first known case of racing-driver-slash-model?

    Sometimes I wonder how F1 cars would look if they designed one to fit me in it.

    Man that Williams sure is something, it would have looked even better if they kept Lonovo on the sidepods though..

    Love the look, although I keep double taking the side rear wing sponsor, it looks so much like Alfa Romeo..

    I can't even remeber the toyota livery!

    On another note Mclarens is literally identical to last years (still look amazing) but they keep toning down the chrome (probably blinds drivers) :(

    Probably because they've kept it the same for the past six years ...

    You know, if Toyota incorporated the gray of their jumpsuits into the car's paintjob, it wouldn't look so bad. That, plus a better use of blue accenting, would give the livery the extra dimension it so desperately needs.

    I think in the NA rounds (Canada and USA, if they ever return there), the toyota should have Lexus branding, like Honda did with Acura. Maybe a change in colour scheme would be nice too. I was talking about it with my dad last night and we thought maybe have the car in black with the flashes on the car coloured silver and red.

    Any ideas?

    Lexus? Ummmm... Probably a dark Blue, kinda like the Prosts of 2000 with some white lines over the place.

    Seems to me their problem is performance, not paint job.

    No, they just have team orders to drive that way so that their sponsors get more track-time. Trust me, if Toyota wanted to win F1, they would build the car to win it and the robots to drive it.
