Once upon a time, Formula 1 cars used to have a paintjob that matched the flags of their countries. The game has since changed, and the cars have been plastered with advertisements instead. Well, the current advertisement plastered cars are no rarity for us, but there’s always a nostalgia in looking back at the past. Camille de Bastiani has created a set of images that show the Formula 1 cars of 2013 dressed in the liveries of various years ranging from the 1960s to mid 2000s.
Watching Formula 1 racing is quite the treat, but watching it from the eyes of a thermal camera is just the road to trippy land we would hope for. Colors changing on the tires are quite engrossing. We actually might not have watched much of the video except the color changes on the tires. The video is from Force India team riding their VJM06 car at the Monza track. For F1 enthusiasts who recognized that the track isn’t Monza, it looks different because the uploader mirrored the video. Take a look at the VJM06 above, and then hit ahead for another thermal camera video, showing a little car crash at the F1 track.
