Remember in the old days when teams used subtle paint job changes to distinguish between cars

The most famous being the red 5 on Mansell's Williams ( they claimed 5 and 6 looked too similar, yet when boutsen took over the number 5 it went back to white) what's interesting is different colored numbers has rarely been done since (Stewart in 1999 and Merc last year stand out though)

Then you had Benetton's and renaults red on the nose like a tougne sticking out

Sauber at one point having red and yellow mirrors (the spare had petronas green )

Ferraris yellow squares on the wings

I'm sure arrows in 97 had red accents for hill and yellow for diniz

Can anyone think of other examples of subtle differences (using drivers names in place of tanac o doesn't count)

Prost used a yellow headrest for Shinji Nakano during part of the 1997 season.

Ferrari has the yellow markings on one car.

But the new numbers have brought this back, Hamilton with his red 44 and Bottas with his light blue 77. The annoying thing is that the numbers aren't slight lower on the nose. But they are even bigger this year

The Red Bull 33 and 3 are some of the worst graphic design I've seen. They both look like red blobs.

Coulthard had red wing mirrors for part of '97, whilst Hakkinen's were just chrome.

Sauber sticks out in my mind for '98. Herbert had a yellow headrest, Alesi's was red.

I remember the sauber using red and yellow

I think Merc had to do that due to 44 and 77 looking too similar at a distance

Tyrel did it in 98 green accents for takagi and orange for rosset

Red bull should do something..like have Danny rics 3 yellow or something

In 96 didn't McLaren have one of the drivers numbers black?

For a time, the on-board camera housings were painted different colors to distinguish one team car from another.

Coulthard had the Wings for Life livery in his last race, and in 1997 the HYPE sponsorship on the Williams bargeboards were in green and orange - but reversed for Frentzen compared to Villeneuve.

Yes, Schumacher had red and Barrichello had yellow from memory

That was an FIA rule, the first numbered car in a team had red, the other yellow.

I thought they had different colours anyway, before the FIA rule if memory serves me right. Not that it matters much!

I thought Mansells red 5 was because he won 5 races on the bounce

na.. he had it before he won any races, they say it was to tell the different between the 5 and 6 but when Boutsen used a white 5 I have to be honest you could easily tell the difference between the numbers

I always think that any picture of rosbergs yellow McLaren looks like a normal McLaren faded, like as if the photo was leftin the sun too long or something, is there any pic of that next to prosts normal one?

Could'nt find any of them side by side in Portugal so this is the best I could find.

Fair enough, no idea where I got that thought from then...
