    Let's face it, the look of the car is a very important appeal to Formula One. the best looking racing cars in the world also are the pinnacle of motor racing art. Sometimes a beautiful car is created, sometimes an ugly car is born due to sponsorship an team livery decisions.

    since watching formula almost every race since 1987, i think the best 5 liveries in F1 have been:

    (in no particular order)

    1989 Bennetton - gotta love the balance of red/blue/green/yellow
    [​IMG]
    2001 Arrows - who else has made Orange and black look so good
    [​IMG]
    1994 Williams - i loved the Rothmans livery... it was so good that Williams have copied it this year.
    [​IMG]
    1999 Jordan - Buzzin Hornets
    [​IMG]
    * all years Ferrari - they truly own the red livery

    honorable mention:
    1992 Williams - Mansell's car was beautiful
    2000 Jaguar - totally green and beautiful
    [​IMG]
    80's McLaren - loved the Malboro red'n'white
    [​IMG]
    Modern McLaren - makes chrome look good
    2004 Renault - i loved the mild seven/renault yellow fusion
    1970's Hesketh - for putting Penthouse girls on an F1 car

    the fugly awards:
    2000 BAR: two liveries dont mix
    modern force india: just doesnt mix:
    ToyotaF1: just didnt look good, and they didnt improve on it
    BAR: Lucky strike just didnt appeal to me

    what is your best/worst 5 liveries of Formula 1?

    Sauber's 2000s liveries, espicially 1998 one.
    Jordan's 1998-99 liveries.
    Toro Rosso 2008! That Bull drawing is epic.
