All 2011 cars and liveries

Below is an overview of all 2011 cars and liveries. As you can read I have given my opinion about the cars and liveries. I dare you to give your opinion in the comments.

Force India F1 Team VJM04 (Click on a picture to see a larger one)

I think this livery is very cool. I like it very much. I give it a nine and a half (9 1/2).

I like the livery of the Lotus Renault GP R31 very much. The perfect match of black, gold and red is very good. I give it a nine (9).

McLaren Mercedes MP4-26 (Click on a picture to see a larger one)

I really do not know what it is with McLaren, but they make very good liveries. This one is no exception. I give it a nine (9).

The liveries of the Mercedes GP F1 Team cars are, two years in a rows, very minimalistic. But in this case I think the silver is great! I give it a eight (8).

Red Bull Racing RB7 (Click on a picture to see a larger one)

There’s something with the livery of the Red Bull cars … I think that the use of colors and lines is just magnificent. I give it a nine (9).

Sauber F1 Team C30 (Click on a picture to see a larger one)

I don’t like the livery of the Sauber C30 very much. I think it’s very minimalistic. I give it a six (6).

Scuderia Ferrari F150 (Click on a picture to see a larger one)

I have always liked the liveries of Scuderia Ferrari and this one is no exception. I give it a nine (9).

I liked the livery of the Team Lotus T127 and I like the livery of the Team Lotus T128 even more. I give it a eight (8).

I think the livery of the MVR-02 is much better than the livery of the VR-01 because of the white tip on the nose cone and the use of grey lines on the side. I give it a nine (9).

Williams F1 Team FW33 (Click on a picture to see a larger one)

Despite the fact this is a preliminary livery, I like it very much. I give it a eight (8).
