I must say I really liked the look of last year's car; it's design and the colour.

Pretty from the livery colour point of view.

Designing of the livery could've been better.

Atleast this car will be easily recognizable.

The line-up for this team doesn't impress or flatter me one bit though.

Did they get an unimaginative toddler to design the livery?

Why do all the teams have that black section at the back?

It's most pronounced on teh Ferrari, and it doesn't look good.

Yep and Ligier and Tyrrell before that. Finally a simple and pretty livery with no overly use of the boring black and silver.
I like it.

Nice to have the colour, just wished there was a bit more on the front end with colour. Makes it look very plain and sponsor-less. (Which it probably is).

Baby's first F1 car. Clearly meant to look like Nasr's GP2 car but they haven't done a great job with it. Shame they didn't keep Simona on and use that green and blue livery that they put on the 2012 Sauber, i thought that was quite cool.

Applaud the fact that there's finally some colour, but if they paid someone to come up with the actual scheme then they should ask for their money back. Blue with a big blob of yellow? Must have taken at least 12 seconds to work out.

Personally, even though the use of silver / chrome is uninspired, at least it looks as if the other teams made some effort.

Not a fan of the nose, either. Not the best for me

There is more than that. If look at wings they are white and grey. There is some white on sidepods too.

I like these colours, Its been long since we havent seen this kind of blue. Since Prost I think? Its always good to see more colour diversity on the grid.

I think it's because Sauber ran out of blue paint and couldn't afford anymore

Sort of expected this, considering the Banco do Brasil monies and no Mexican drivers. But I have to say that Nasr's Carlin, which had a little bit more yellow thrown into the mix, looked much nicer than this imitation.

They had a HUGE opportunity to stick the yellow on the engine cover and around the cockpit and have it resemble the classic Williams livery from the early 90s.

Looks unfinished to me.

Nice, getting a bit of a mid-90s Benetton vibe from it with the blue and the yellow sidepods.

Nice to have some colour but boy is that car ugly. The blue could have been that lovely metallic one Prost used and the yellow just looks like an after though. The Carlin GP2 team did it so much better.

Glad it's not so similar to this years apparent norm, but I do think that is a seriously ugly car.

The team has two drivers and two sponsors, that's it. Is F1 really heading into this? there's talk that Force India have money problems and yet their car is all most full of sponsor logos, if Sauber don't run into money problems by the end of the 'new' season then I'd be very suprised.

Honestly. I think some of you would be mad if you were hung with a new rope.

This livery is a departure from what everyone and their brother seems to be doing, and is very different from what Sauber itself has had for the last few years. It's bright and has some contrast, but is considered too simple by some people who would've been happy if McLaren had painted their whole car papaya orange with black lettering.

Nice to see something different from black / grey.

I don't know what happened to F1 though, remember when liveries were something we all looked forward to and got excited about. I can't remember the last time there was a good looking new livery. They're all 'same as last year' / block colour.
