You seriously can't apply one concept of "not believing in but being open to" into another context? Maybe I've just worked at a university too long.

I could probably apply that if I had any sort of knowledge of their prior sponsorship history. What am I doing in this thread anyway? :shrug:

After a quick perusal of wikipedia... surely they should go back to their original green and white? Or perhaps maybe they should stay silver as a nod to their kiwi roots?

They were paid to paint the car green and white so that it could be used in footage for the film "Grand Prix". This says they still revert to orange when they haven't got a sponsor, although it's from a few years ago.

It looks good but thank god they are only using it for testing. We have enough dark cars as it is and i've already moaned here in the past about how i miss previous years where we had a good bunch of different liveries.

Around 2001 was best.

Ferrari: Red
McLaren: Silver
Williams: Navy and White
Sauber: Pale blue and a darker blue w/ white nosecone
BAR: White with red
Jordan: Yellow and black
Arrows: Orange and black
Prost: Dark blue and red
Minardi: Yellowy green with blue

All the cars instantly distinguishable from afar, instead of today's 50 shades of grey on the grid.

Sounds like the A1 Grand Prix series that failed miserably
