Check out these stunning Grand Prix-inspired F1 liveries

Designer Tim Holmes has made one for every race of the 2017 season

Regular readers of our F1 coverage here on DriveTribe will know that we love a good livery project.

Something about marrying the fastest cars in the world with some fantastic fantasy designs just appeals to all race fans. After all, your first memories of racing are usually of the visuals on TV.

Today we've got another stunning set for you, this time from designer Tim Holmes, who has created an F1 livery for each round of the 2017 Formula 1 world championship.

Tim says: "Each race takes a particular look, inspired directly by the host country's national flag colour scheme and identity.

"To compliment each design I also feature a layout of the circuit being raced, the dates and name.

"Finally to give the look a more complete finish, I have chosen to incorporate only brands and companies from the respective races home country. For example Air Canada features on the livery for Round 7 in Montreal Canada."

We think they are great, but which one is your favourite?

  • Top job, some brilliant designs here. Only criticism is that on the US flag, the blue field of stars should always be at the front of the vehicle, as can be seen on right side of the Haas and the right sleeve of some military uniforms.

  • Epic work as always. I think the Belgium and Italian liveries won it for me.

  • These would make excellent safety cars.

    • Yes, that would be a great idea. Have a low powered generic F1 car as the safetycar with different liveries for each race, and also have the safety car do the warm-up lap.
