    Honda's new livery

    What do you all think of Honda's new Livery?

    Pure Genius?

    Insincere, they've done it due to lack of sponsorship?

    It strikes me as rather hypocritical. If you're so concerned about carbon emissions, withdraw from the mind-numbing spectacle of F1. That'd have a much greater effect than painting a few images from Google Maps on your cars.

That's the hypocrisy. If they really want to be sincere about their concern they'd be making a much greater statement by abandoning F1 altogether.

    Which, incidentally, is what all the fans of F1 will do if the chap I saw on Channel 4 news last night was right when he said that in future teams will be given a certain amount of "energy" to use in the race. The team that best uses the "energy" will be the winners. So bye-bye to the screaming roar of an F1 engine and hello to rattling buzz of a three-cylinder diesel.

    Lottie, surely you must agree that telling people they should be concerned about the environment whilst haring around a track drinking fuel and haemorrhaging CO2 into the atmosphere is hypocritical.

    Don't think that I will have a picture of RA107 in that livery as my desktop - yuck.

    Now the initial pictures in Black now that looks good.

    Good on you girl. Sorry if my post came across as a personal attack, which it wasn't; this has got me really frustrated because I like Honda (as much as one can like a multinational corporation) because I like their work and think they do good things and probably are focussed and well-meaning. But F1? One of the ultimate carbon-chomping excesses? I just don't buy it, sorry. It's media-bandwagon-jumping.

    I get what your saying about F1 being a gigantic carbon factory, but when you put the output of F1 compared to that of everybody accross the globe who watches it, it's probably tiny. If they get their message accross and every F1 fan (or the majority) does something this year to help the enviroment then it will be a success.

    I hear they have promised to reduce their CO2 emmisions also by promising to pop even fewer champagne bottles on rostrum this year, than they have in the last 5 seasons!

    Good on you honda, long may you continue to randomly circulate in the middle of the pack in this the most pointless form of "motorsport!"

    So you've already put a £10000 bet on this years F1 champion then? Sounds like like a safe bet if it's so predictable, I might have a flutter myself. Do audi do an F1 car? I'll watch it this year maybe.
