    I think there is still a worry that it may happen over suspension on some teams at Aus.

    Stick a Honda engine in it and they'll be flying off the shelves.

    Honestly I'm happy with any livery that isn't grey/black.

    I do miss the old Indian flag coloured cars though.

    It's not to bad, but that big blue logo just clashes to much for me. That and the fact the force India has about the worst shark fin of the lot of them.

    100%, I like a splash of colour on the grid, and that's been missing for a while. If it had been a darker shade I think we'd almost have the rainbow.
    red (Ferr & Haas)
    orange (McHrt)
    yellow (R)
    Green (merc)
    blue (STR & Saub)
    Indigo (RBR)
    Pink instead of violet (FI)

    and the white of Williams ofc.

    I thought you were joking! Didn't even contemplate it was a real colour scheme. Well always good to add more colour to the cars.

    It does sort of look like this is the undercoat and they ran out of money or time before the put the topcoat on!

    The beginning of more sensible new races? To harsh? What ever liberty's reasons they know they need to be long term and not quick buck.

    https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/azerbaijan-gp-boss-hits-out-at-ignorant-liberty-criticism-883054/

    Azerbaijan Grand Prix promoter Arif Rahimov has hit back at Liberty Media boss Greg Maffei after he made critical remarks about the Baku F1 event.
    Speaking at Deutsche Bank conference in Florida last week, the Liberty president and CEO referred to the potential expansion of the F1 calendar and markets that were of interest.

    He then cited Baku as an example of a race that did not contribute to the overall growth of the sport, implying that the fee was of more significance to former F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone.

    "I think it's our job to do far more to help the promoters to be successful," Maffei told the audience.

    "Frankly Bernie's attitude was, 'How much can I extract from them?' I heard him call them the victims! 'How much can I extract, how much up front?'

    "So we end up with races in places like Baku in Azerbaijan, where they paid us a big race fee, but it does nothing to build the long-term brand and health of the business.

    "Our job is to find partners who pay us well, but also help us to build the product.

    "And it's incumbent upon us to bring best practice. What are the races that are considered the most exciting?

    "Abu Dhabi, the Singapore night race, Mexico City. What's going on well in those races? We need to share that better with the promoters in each of the cities where things are less successful."

    Maffei's apparent dismissal of Baku was not well received by those behind the event, with Rahimov admitting his comments had upset organisers.

    "It does upset us obviously," Rahimov told Reuters today. "Mr Maffei has been involved in F1 for less than half a year.

    "We've been working on this project for three years now so we have more experience with F1 than them.

    "I think saying something like this is ignorant, but we'll see."
