Sidepodcast - All for F1 and F1 for all

Honda's innovative imagery - A brand new concept with a striking livery to match

Published by Christine

Of course, it's all about Honda today.

I can't add anything to the information that is already out there, so I'll point you in those directions: Blog F1 has all the pictures, Sidepodcast forums [link removed] has all the details.

I can add my opinion on the subject though.

I don't mind the picture. It's fine. Why shouldn't they have the Earth on their car?

It's weird how it just stops halfway up the car though, leaving the back black. I'm not sure what they were going for there, presumably the curve of the Earth. It leaves the back looking a bit odd, out of perspective, or something.

I'm not sure about the idea of getting sponsors as you go along, and adding their names to the car as they cough up the dough. It seems an almost childish way of collecting sponsors, but they are promoting a good cause and that's what sponsorship should be all about.

I'm all for thinking about the Earth, I really am, but I don't know how much difference they're going to be able to make.

It's also worth noting that Jenson is still complaining about the lack of speed. Perhaps they should have gone for some go faster stripes instead of the entire earth.
