Haas F1 ditch livery for remainder of season

3

Haas F1 has changed its livery for the rest of teh season according to their website. It seems the pesky rule about higher visibility numbers garnered a complete re-think for the graphics department at Haas F1 and they’ve done away with much of the red coloring of their car. 

The red, for me, signified the Haas brand as well as a nod to Ferrari…like Intel inside if you will. Now it’s dangerously close to the infamous “predatory Grey” of Ron Dennis fame. Gunther said:

“It is for the whole year now. With the change in the size of the numbers and its positioning, we looked into making the entire car a little more visible.”

Well, the upside is, maybe it looks a little more Minardi and that’s not all bad is it?

We could see their names ok but I thought we had to see their numbers too…

The numbers have to be visible from the front of the car, and either the number or the trigram representing the driver’s name from the side.

I’ve hardly ever used the numbers to ID the driver. If I knew their number I already knew their helmet design(s). But having the big trigram is pretty cool too.
