Re: Which Red Bull livery do you prefer? Camoflaged or Offic

I liked the fact that Red Bull brought something new and creative to their livery. Something that was a lot different from liveries in years past. But black and white? Not the best colour choice to be honest. Then I saw the mockup of the camp with RBR colours in it. That's a good livery. As I said e...

That makes a lot more sense. Never thought of that before. I guess the sidepods act like a bit of a sail sometimes. Not much you really can do about the winds in Barca. As you said, definitely a strange one!

From what I'm getting at, it looks like Alonso simply ran off the track, turned in a little sharply, and crashed into the wall. I'm calling drive...

Good to hear Marussia is close to getting out of debt but they are certainly dead if not deader. Didn't they sell off their 2015 prototype? Anyways, with their chances of making Melbourne relatively low as it is right now, I'm not reserving the same hope for Caterham.
