Renault has revealed it’s 2017 contender:
The all yellow livery was great last year, but to evolve the livery needed more black, and that’s what they’ve delivered. While I wouldn’t say it’s quite as nice as the 2010 bumblebee livery, it is very pleasant. They’ve stuck with the matte paint and the design is actually very reminiscent of the Mild Seven era liveries, minus the outline and obviously the blue.
It is quite simple at the end of the day, but that isn’t a bad thing. My biggest gripe with this livery is Castrol. Renault had finally got rid of Total’s (and PDVSA’s) red requirement last year and have now moved on to another oil supplier that won’t conform to a colour scheme.
Up next are Force India, hoping to steal the orange hype away from McLaren!
