        I have to say, I really like it. Simple, but sharp. Not entirely sure about the matte spots are on the back of the sidepod and on the engine cover are though.

            Absolutely gorgeous car. Also, it looks like they picked up Infiniti.

                I don't think you can call Infiniti a sponsor here, as they are part of Nissan-Renault.

                  There's a lot of talk that that's a temporary scheme. I find it to be underwhelming, I prefer the 2010 scheme.

                    Overall it's a nice livery. It looks a bit Lotus-ish, although it was the Lotus team so I guess that works. I would've preferred something more design wise using their classic color palette, yellow, black, and white.

                    Look to be generic hexagons.

                      Very underwhelming. Is going to read as a generic black car from the stands if that's the final iteration of the scheme.

                        Yeah, they do, I just don't know what they're there for. Doesn't quite make sense to me, but that's up to them. Should look interesting under the lights in Singapore and Abu Dhabi.

                          Could be an interesting way to do sponsors if you did a matte color match of the hexagon to the sponsor

                            Now that would be a pretty neat way to do it Phat. Unless one is neon green and an adjacent one is purple.

                              Not as much yellow as I was hoping for, but I like that
