From Autosport:

Quote:
Force India has revealed a dramatic new pink colour scheme that it will race from the start of the 2017 Formula 1 season.

The switch to the pink, magenta and silver livery has come in the wake of the team signing a new sponsorship deal with water technology specialists BWT.


This is certainly... unexpected. I also had to check it wasn't April 1st and I'm sure I'm not the only one!

This to me looks the most beauiful livery of the grid!

I'm so happy! Beers on me.

It's definitely better than the original one. And it'll be the only pink car on the grid, the more uniquely-coloured cars the better in my book. Glad they've added a little bit of graphics to the fin as well - makes all the difference.

This was already predicted by Auto bild publication that they were in talks with BWt & if the deal happens, the livery will go Pink.

It's commendable that Force India are attracting so many sponsors.

Interestingly it's only a very recent thing that colours started being associated with different sexes, and to begin with it was actually pink for boys and blue for girls:

Quote:
One of the earliest references to this original color scheme appeared in a June of 1918 edition of the trade publication Earnshaw’s Infants’ Department,
"The generally accepted rule is pink for the boys, and blue for the girls. The reason is that pink , being a more decided and stronger color, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl."

http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php ... lue-girls/

Sorry to drag the thread off topic slightly but a cool bit of trivia.

Now I understand why they didn't bother to put on a good livery at the launch & during testing!

It was as if just paint the car anyhow now. I think they were prepared for the backlash for that livery which look so unfinished / unpolished.

Their silver sharkfin masked itself quite well from the pre-season test photos, I always had to look hard to notice it. Kind of wish they kept that on this livery.

I liked Button's pink helmet 8O the other year and I really like this too. I never knew I was a pink fan. Time to go shopping.

Force India are not the first ones to incorporate Pink:

It's..... Different!
It will fit right in on breast cancer awareness month.
It's a brave and rather good look I'd say.

Orange was kinda crowded this year, not a bad move. Only thing I don't like is the blue BWT thing (both color and design).

Hate it. Horrible and weak shade of pink... would have preferred a bolder and more vibrant pink.

I have no problem with this. From the render it looks like there's to be a bit of pearl to the color so it ought to pop quite nicely in the sun.

The colour is.... striking.... I like that they've made sure we won't miss them in the pack.

I loved Button's helmet - it looked so striking rising from that all-silver McLaren. I wished he'd kept it for the rest of his career, and some day I hope to buy one if I can!

But for whatever reason I can't get behind this livery as much. I'm not sure why - it's black and pink, which I think are good colors. Hopefully it'll grow on me when I see it on track.

Could have been worse, could have been purple helmets...

It's not a great shade of pink, but at least it's not another black car. No danger of getting it mixed up with anything else.

Rare moments when colour-blindness is a virtue. Didn't even notice it was pink.

Just out of curiosity: what color do you perceive it to be?

It would be rather ironic if it were silver!

I... actually don't mind the pink. Initially I was like, "Woah, wtf is that?" but having got past the surprise, I think it's actually quite nice. Curious as to how it will appear on-track. It does remind me a bit of a pink lemonade bottle, though!
