    I really don’t mind the halo. I think peope are making way too big a deal over it. We have known a canopy or halo has been coming for years. Now that it is here, it is here to stay until something better comes along, so there is zero point complaining about it. I watch F1 primarily for the racing not the aesthetics. If we see a tire fly at a drivers head get deflected and save their life then we’ll be quickly praising the FIA for the great initiative they took against strong opposition.

    RBR’s livery looks amazing. I wish this was their permanent livery. Kind of like the camouflage livery they launched with a couple of years ago. That was awesome. I have never found their regular livery very interesting.

    We will get use to the halo by Abu Dhabi, l am sure. But yes, it does look like an after thought

    I'm pretty sure this is just a launch livery

    The car's special edition livery is not expected to last long, with Red Bull saying their 'race-ready' livery will be unveiled in Barcelona next week.

    t's not the first time the team have launched with a distinctively different look - back in 2015 the RB11 was launched with the black and white 'camobull' paint job.

    That would be a shame, as the normal Redbull livery of yellow and red has become too familiar and boring. Which was why the blue and silver livery of the Torro Rosso was exiting and was one of the best livery on the grid last year. I have found the livery of the Redbulll of the last few years very boring, only saved by the intricate beauty if the shape of the chassis. I can almost guess what the Redbull livery of 2019 would look like.

    Hard to tell why they did not go with supersoft tyres

    Out of the cars we've seen so far, the Sauber is the one I like the least. The livery itself is nice, but the car is shaped like a brick with sidepods.
