    That client is using a custom skin:

    Grey is not downloaded to your PC.
    Red is downloading.
    Green skin is downloaded to your PC.

    So Red is downloading, does that mean i can download skins directly inside the lobby? If so, how does that work?

    It's automatic. Here's what ISI says about it:

    5. Enable skin sharing.

    You can enable automatic car skin sharing online by activating the appropriate checkbox on the Display tab of the Settings pages within rFactor2. There is also a ‘Download Custom Skins’ line in the multiplayer.ini for the same thing (both host and client need it activated for it to work).

    7. Your skin, shared.

    With automatic car skin sharing enabled (by both you and the host of the race), everyone else can download your skin from you when you join the server. You can also download theirs.

    On the timing screen, you will see icons beside each driver if there is a skin available from them or not, and whether you have downloaded it.

    Note: Downloading will only occur when you are not in the cockpit of the race car. If you are racing while someone new joins the server, they will be given a temporary livery until you next exit the cockpit and are viewing the timing screen.
