There are many things about F1 that we instantly recognise and relate to the sport, from the car liveries, to the drivers, to the team logos. A logo, like with any brand, shows the world who you are and what you’re about. Some of the most recognisable images in the world are logos, so we thought it would be interesting to see what happens when you take the F1 team logos (and a few drivers too) and mix them with their rivals colours.
Click on the images below to see what it looks like when you put F1 teams in rival colours.
Mercedes have dominated Formula 1 for the past few seasons with by far the best car on the track and a healthy rivalry between drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. The silver and green colour combination has become one of the most recognisable combinations in F1.
After enjoying a four-year spell at the top of the championship table, Red Bull have been playing catch up for the last few years. This is how things would look if they decided to copy Mercedes team colours.
Ferrari remains one of the most prestigious names in sport despite not winning an F1 Championship since 2007. The Ferrari red is an iconic racing colour, but does the logo maintain its appeal if swapped with the colours of Williams?
Williams have enjoyed a great run of form over the past few years and have put themselves right at the top of the grid amongst the main title contenders.
Despite having two of the most talented drivers with former world champions, Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button, McLaren really have suffered from a lack of reliability over an extended period of time now and have found themselves struggling at the bottom of both the driver and constructors standings. Here’s how they would look in Lotus colours.
Lotus have established themselves as a solid team over the last five years. The black and gold stands out on the grid for all the right reasons, with viewers recognising the dark Lotus car instantly.
Force India have had a great season and have worked their way into fifth place in the Constructor’s Championship, which will be their highest finish since joining Formula 1.
Red Bull’s sister team, Toro Rosso, has become a breading ground of fine racers including Sebastian Vettel, Max Verstappen and current Red Bull team Daniel Ricciardo and Danil Kyvat.
Sauber have recently undergone a bit of a makeover with the team coming back with a new livery for their 2015 car. Formerly decked out in white, grey and black, the new blue car was something different for this season.
It’s fair to say that Marussia have struggled since coming to Formula 1 and there is much speculation as to whether Marussia will leave F1 at the end of the year.
