"Filming Day"...Ricciardo pulls the RB14 out of its Silverstone stall and onto the track.

I personally like the RB14 livery, its reminiscent to modern military pixalated camouflage.
And I can tell RB14 livery designers trying very hard to hide the ugly Halo.

I like the "camo" livery too, but this is what is being said..."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."

As much as I hate the look of the halo, I'm glad it's there to protect these guys. Thanks for all the great pictures as always Mtxzptlk, looking forward to another year of your F1 threads!!

Renault RS18....pretty car...hope they're fast.

Four fast facts:

The Enstone team's win in the 2013 Australian GP was the last non-Mercedes, Red Bull or Ferrari success in F1

No driver in F1 history has started more races than Nico Hulkenberg without finishing on the podium

This is Renault's third different spell as a Formula 1 team owner

Renault improved by more positions than any team in the 2017 Constructors' Championship

Halo looks alright, although I prefer the look of the screen Indycar was testing.

Here's what I see when I see that halo...the top of a flip flop.

Oh no, here's a POV video from inside the cockpit. This would drive me absolutely nuts while driving.

Good bye driver's POV shots from races I guess.

wow, that is ridiculous...and the cars are still hideous. We'll see how long this lasts. I can understand if the drivers were getting hit all the time, but come on...this is not necessary. Maybe they should have added a canopy like the changes they made to LM P1/2 cars.

They are killing the sport, to take the words from James Hunt in Rush. What's next? They gonna strap teddy bears in with the drivers?

Can we start calling the Halo, the thong?! The shot of the Ferrari with the prancing horse logo reminds me of a thong and a tramp stamp! sorry for the graphic vision haha.

Happy to see safety improvements but this sure is ugly.

Cheers!

Halo doesn't look all that bad. Not as bad as the ones they tested last year.

Halo>TV antenna from last year. The looks of the cars improved since a year ago, IMO. I think all the bad press they've been getting over the last year is making people freak out excessively. Give it a year, you won't notice it.
