    Following on from the 50 Best Liveries Of All Time/Here Are Liveries I Like thread, what liveries don't you like?

    There are many more liveries that I do like compared to liveries that I don't like, but I'll get the ball rolling.

    I sort of do like the 1992 (and final) Brabham, but I concede it's not the best and doesn't really work.

    Team Vodafone's 2012 livery is pretty horrible:

    [​IMG]

    Mostly because it's a politically-motivated design. The over-use of red coincides with Holden directing more and more money towards the team; it's a clear statement that Triple Eight is "theirs". It couldn't be any less subtle if it showed a picture of Simon McNamara - Holden's motorsport director - lifting his leg against the car to mark his territory.

    Far too many colours and messy patterns:

    Red completely ruins it:

    Ugly car, ugly livery..again could probably do without the red:

    Toyota's F1 liveries were all very lazy (their test car had a great livery though):

    I always thought this was a stunning livery. However, the individuals were better. The Zonta 555 especially;

    I personally think this was one of the best liveries from 2011. I think the red makes it better.


    I also thought this was a good looking livery as well. (Maybe the sponsor took away from it a bit, but the colors flow well together in my opinion)

    Now, here are some ugly liveries:

    The Ameriquest Soaring Dreams project might have been with good intentions but the car designs lacked all of it:

    Tony Kanaan's scheme for this year; awful. There's a reason fluorescent racing cars aren't common :lol:

    I like that Lola.

    This on the other hand...

    [​IMG]

    The early colour of the Jordan 196 makes the car look... unwell.

    [​IMG]

    The 192 wasn't the best, neither. Ruined by Barclay.

    [​IMG]

    The last of the Janspeed Nissans. Just... no.

    Rubbish! The PS01 was a great looking car.

    As was the Minardi M02, before anyone posts that. When I think ugly Minardi, out of the later designs, I'm drawn to the Minardi M197.

    I don't think one-offs really belong in this discussion, as NASCAR is wont to do for so-called special occasions.

    Thou shalt not curse the Pink Pig. Complete with cuts of swine, it's one of my favorites.

    The Minardi M197 was quite a compromise.

    One more does not equal common. Usually, it's because the fluorescent colors drawn out other sponsor colors on TV. Although, it seems his is tastefully done, as there's little other colors mashed into the paint scheme.


    Same with silver painted backgrounds, it seems only McLaren has found a consistent winning formula for that.
