  1. Where was Aston Martin?

    1. Early-ish problems kept them away for some time.

  2. Gulf must have supplied the floviz paint for Williams.

  3. Can I suggest photographing the sunlit side of the cars, rather than their shadows?

    1. Silly comment… Yeah, just let the photographer just walk across the track to the other side to get the sunlit angle 🤣🤣

  4. This orange spray on the Williams automatically makes it the most interesting livery in the field.
    At first I thought this was an article on IndyCar, because F1 liveries are so bland it couldn’t have been F1….

  5. @dang All images are from 3rd-party photographers rather than, so nothing really to do in this regard.

  6. Look at all these photos I’m not clicking on because of the frustratingly ancient photo gallery. It’s 2023, not 2003

    1. It has to… You know, match the comment system

      1. @losd I would like your comment, but that wasn’t invented until 2007

  7. The flanks of that Mercedes are hideous. It looks like the side airbags have gone off.

    1. It look slike all the cars/drivers have really big shoulders when viewed from a certain angle at the front. All looks a bit weird as most (looking at you Haas) have now found the same solution to the hot air waste.

  8. Vasseur looks like he has been on the Ferrari wall for a couple of years now
