Aston Martin to retain BWT logos

2021 F1 season

The logos of BWT, whose bright pink colouring has been seen on Racing Point’s cars in recent years, will remain on the team’s livery following its rebranding as Aston Martin for the 2021 F1 season.

Aston Martin is expected to reveal a substantially green livery when it presents its new car in one week’s time. This prompted speculation BWT would take its branding to a rival team where its distinctive colour scheme would be more prominent.

However Aston Martin has confirmed today a continuation of its partnership with BWT which began in 2017, when the team was known as Force India. BWT logos and “subtle brand accents” will feature on the car, it said in a statement.

“The look and feel of the new team to be launched on Wednesday 3rd March will be very different, featuring an all-new base colour,” the team added.

CEO Otmar Szafnauer said BWT had been “loyal supporters” over the past four seasons. “BWT will support our efforts to become more sustainable in all areas of the business, but especially in our trackside operations – a goal that marries up with Formula 1’s own sustainability objectives,” he said. “This is a strong and historic partnership entering an important new era, and we are all excited to see what we can achieve together.”

    1. I guess those hoping for a “watermellon” livery last year won’t get that fulfilled even if they stay.
      From the wording it seems as if there will not be a lot of pink on the car though (that would surely be more than “subtle brand accents)?

      Green with pink accents? Yuck!

      1. @davewillisporter, green and pink can mix together very well.

      2. They are complementary colors, so it should match pretty well

    3. Perhaps pink is the new green

    4. Maybe BWT is launching a new “Best – Mint Water – technology” all green brand !!! :-)

    5. I kinda always liked BWT as a sponsor, because it reminds me of the tobacco days when cars were decked completely in the color of the sponsor.
      What I don’t like about it is that they mandate the driver’s helmets also to be predominantly pink.
      It takes away from the personality and makes it all too corporate.

      1. Pink helmets in a green car looks pretty dope though

    6. Like anything you get used to it over time. When I first saw the pink livery I have to say I thought it seemed ridiculous to paint an F1 car pink (I know Brabham tried it in the dying days), but I’ve grown quite fond of the ‘Pink Panther’ look, I’d say it’s the most distinctive scheme on the grid, and plenty of F1 cars have had ‘British Racing Green’ over the years. I’m not exactly excited about the launch.

      It was certainly one of the more distinct and thus presumably one of the most effective liveries.

    7. Either main sponsor or secondary sponsor?
