F1 Teams in Rival Colours

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.

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.

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.

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.

Here’s how Sauber driver Marcus Ericsson looks in the colours of Marussia

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.

Will Stevens might not be at Marussia next year, would he do well with Sauber?
