Lots of blue on the grid this year.

I can't say I'm a fan of the Williams blue.

The Aston and Alpine are fire

Not a fan of the Williams paint scheme.
It's very dated.

So they are having sprint races at 3 races instead of regular qualifying kinda sorta?

Color me confused as to what this brings to the party as current qualifying, at least to me, is often more exciting that the race itself.

I think they were going for that...

Per Team Principal Simon Roberts:

"... we have created a fresh new livery for the 2021 car; one that acknowledges our incredible past and retains the spirit, drive and motivation that remains at the core of Williams' DNA yet looks to the future and signposts our long-term ambition to return to the front of the grid."

More competition, or an attempt to make it more TV friendly...

Hard to see how a sprint race will be any more "competitive" in terms of mid packers' chances of winning than the regular race.

An opportunity for a front runner to get taken out I guess.

Very odd.

Well, I'm gonna lean more heavily on the TV friendly aspect of it...

1. Add more reason for fans to attend on Saturday.
2. Another 'show' to have on TV
3. An opportunity for teams to get more data for adjusting their cars.
4. An opportunity for teams to shine that might not in the main race.

Looks like one of those generic generated schemes you got in racing sims of the past.

IMO, the Alpine livery is the best looking.

Rooting for McLaren to shake things up at the front, even if it is just a different colored Merc.

If Marlboro can get away with Mission WinNow on Ferraris I guess the Russians can get away with this on the Haas cars...
