What a mess.

The huge blue areas for 'Sport Pesa' really do not compliment the pink livery. They stick out so badly. Then throw in the magenta, the white and the silver and it's just awful.

Awful.

Maybe, but still they were not pink!

The last time in my life I have seen so ugly livery was like... 2 days ago when Williams revealed their livery xD

Fair enough. There was a pink Brabham before, and a pink Indy winner in the 50's, albeit not an F1 car exactly.

I don't mind the pink itself. It is certainly not as bad as some of the BAR liveries like the Earth one

Are they still sticking with Racing Point or changing it before Melbourne?

Anyways... that dark blue has no place on that car at all...

Ah, the legendary Honda Earth livery. None can hope to compete with such a lofty standard of ugliness.

Shame that they did not used the chance to get rid of the pink. The blue patch make it worse.

Looks more like a pram than a racing car.

I'm not against the pink... I think it gives a good 'uniqueness' to the team but the blue patch is horrific, the magenta and silver just complicate it even more.

A lot of people are hating it, but I'm going to come out as a surprise and say that this livery actually works really well for me. Sure, the colors aren't the best, but those are determined by sponsors. But particularly from the 3/4 side view (top picture), the lines are all sweeping and pointing forward, and it looks busy in an exciting way to me. It's bright, it's colorful, and it's covered in sponsors. It looks like a healthy racing car, rather than a poorly-executed attempt at minimalism like most of the modern liveries.

It's kind of ugly from the front, but from the side I actually like it a surprising amount.

I may have a soft spot for ugly things, but I kind of like it.

Also don't think a F1 team has done their reveal in Canada before

Proof, if needed, that graphic design is a profession that requires true craftmanship.
Or the job was done by a bad professional, or it was done by the child of the accountant to save a handful of pennies.

The blue would go well with the darker pink, but with the light pink and white its a bit too much.

To each their own but personally i'm glad to be rid of those monstrosities.

I think it's the end plates that make these new wings look bad, and you only really see them from a side on view. They just look very "agricultural" to me, but probably wont notice by the end of the first race.

Yeah they are basically able to change their name every year, very clever.

Except it won't work like that. Nobody is going to think 'SportPesa Racing .' and then eventually just 'SportPesa Racing' when they hear 'SportPesa Racing Point'. Similarly, the only place it has been stylised as 'SportPesa Racing .' is their logo. Everywhere else it is still 'SportPesa Racing Point'. And considering how infrequently teams are referred to by their title sponsor, they'll be Racing Point regardless of the title sponsor.

The colors of Racing Point's livery aren't the problem. Like Williams, it's the design, or lack thereof that's the issue. Pink and blue actually work quite well together, but you need to hire a qualified graphic designer to execute a proper design.

While you see monstrosities, some of us see amazing feats of engineering and interesting craftsmanship. The teeny wings of the Pre-2009 cars looked great from the profile side of the car, but from the front they were TINY and looked way out of proportion with the rest of the car.

I see this sort of comment made a lot. Since you work (or have worked) in the field, do you happen to know what F1 teams actually use for their livery designs? Do they hire a graphic design professional/firm, or do they have an in-house graphic artist? Either way, I have a hard time believing it's not someone qualified. People with high qualifications do s****y jobs every day of the year - just about every terrible logo or ad campaign out there was done by someone with qualifications.

I don't really see the problem with it. It's distinctive and certainly eye-catching, which I assume is what they were going for. I don't think it looks particularly ugly. Eye of the beholder, and all that

Didn't they owe a small amount of money to "hire a princess"?

Maybe that's who did the livery..

I guess that the main problem with the liveries these days is that the place of the sponsor is strictly defined, and there is no running away from it. There were some bad F1 liveries in the past because of the different sponsors buying their their places where the colors and shapes don't much, and therefore we have the best liveries those that are made of one big sponsor, such as Ligier Gitanes, JPS Lotus, Parmalat Brabham, Martini Brabham/Williams and such. For a good example, other sponsors had to follow the main black-gold coloring in JPS Lotuses and looks lie it was fine for them.
