Retro Formula One motorsport

Formula One liveries from the cars of decades past transferred to a 2013 car.

“for those who hold that everything was better in the old days”
This project started out of curiosity. Growing up watching Formula 1 through the 80's and 90's I loved the simple but striking liveries that used to adorn my heroes cars. Formula 1 cars in the 21st century, although still striking in terms of their looks, have become more of an exercise in advertising than artwork. I decided to try out some of the old liveries on a 21st century car shape. The resulting images (below) got picked up by motor blogs and magazines, even by the BBC's Top Gear who commissioned me to do six more based on what their blog readers requested.
