    1. Well, this aint that bad compared to what we have seen so far.
      So the team heritage livery is all dark blue and no white?

      1. …..no…..they-just-cant-afford-to-buy-any-white-paint-atm!!!

    2. Well…it could have been worse…

    3. Nice little detail on the mirrors, using the turning vanes on the top of the sidepods to mount the mirrors.

    4. In what way is it a heritage livery? It does not look like any williams I ever saw.

      1. It is a livery used only for Pre-season testing. They will unveil the this year car’s livery after Pre-season testing.

      2. Its the color which Frank’s 1st F1 cars were in the late 60s/Early 70s:


        1. I wonder if people reacted the same way when that car was reviled as people do to this years front wing :D

    5. Livery will change. Always does by the time the season starts.

    6. Probably the second best looking after the Merc.

      Hope it moves a little better than last year.

    7. Nice little video of it (& the Force India) from an interested spectator:

      I think those big exhausts really help the sound. And they’re shifting through the gears quickly – Monaco will be a very busy lap!

    8. This is a very pretty car, the only ones I like are the Mercedes, Sauber and this. Caterham and Ferrari are taking the **** with their ugliness!

    9. @bullfrog – thanks for the video! The turbo is sounding amazing. The dark blue I think is great and the car is looking much much better than on the renders :) The shape makes sense aerodynamically – as opposed to the caterham..

    10. Even without using the full power (video by bullfrog) , i can see that these cars will be faaaaaaaast, , there will be so much torque on tap coming out of those corners it should be quite a handful under race/quali conditions, Awesome power plants, I just wish all the trickery crap (ers drs ) was gone and it was a straight turbo motor , fat slicks and a little bit of downforce, but it is what it is and I cant wait to see these cars fired out of corners in anger.

    11. The best looking 2014 F1 by far.
      The dark blue paint is amazing. Brutal and classy.
