This winter, in an effort to stave off the boredom that comes with months of no Formula 1 action, we asked design guru Sean Bull to come up with new liveries for each of the F1 teams for the 2018 season.

Sean got to work and produced a full livery for each team, before they all revealed their new designs.

So, this is what the F1 grid would look like in 2018 - if Sean had been in charge for every team. Let us know what you think in the comments section...


The champs are up first, and Sean has stuck to the corporate colour scheme, while adding his own twist.


Well, you've got to stick to red, but we particularly like the shadow of the prancing horse that Sean has incorporated at the rear of the engine cover.

Red Bull Racing

The first one where Sean has gone radical. The usual blue, yellow and red colour scheme the team uses is all well and good, but just imagine how distinctive this one would be roaring around the race tracks of the world...

Force India

The Silverstone-based squad had one of the best looking cars on the grid last year with their Pink Panther. This year's is arguably even better, so Sean had his work cut out. What do you make of it?


We all love the Martini livery Williams has used for the last few years, but it's getting a bit... samey. Sean has gone a different route, while maintaining the lead sponsor. Classy.


There's a hint of gold to the yellow Sean has used on the Renault, and it looks mint.

Toro Rosso

The Toro Rosso was THE best looking car on the grid last season - FACT. But that didn't put Sean off coming up with an entirely new concept for the team.


The American outfit had pretty much the dullest livery in F1 last year, so Sean's Maserati-inspired design (based on the rumours they were planning a tie-up) is much more pleasing.


McLaren have gone properly back to their roots this year with the papaya livery, but Sean's taken inspiration from one of their other most iconic designs for his take on the car.

Sauber Alfa Romeo

This was one of the most eagerly anticipated liveries once the tie-up was announced between the Swiss F1 squad and the legendary Italian marque. Here's Sean's take on it...

  • The only which is worse is Alfa-Sauber, irl it's much better looking.
