Formula 1 – probably the most famous motorsport in the world, with a history dating back over 60 years. The worlds fastest drivers battle it out, wheel to wheel, in ultra light weight, super fast race cars, watched by hundreds of millions of people around the world. Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna, Nigel Mansell, Michael Schumacher, Lewis Hamilton, Niki Lauda, James Hunt, Jaun Manuel Fangio, Sebastian Vettel and Jacky Stewart – legendary names how risked life and limb on a Sunday afternoon to prove who was the best.
The 2013 season of Formula 1 is already underway, and the first two races have been won by two different drivers. The only similarities between these modern F1 cars have to the ones pounding around the circuits in the 50′s is that they have 4 wheels – computer controlled systems, massively powerful engines and ultra light weight materials are standard on even the slowest car on the grid, and show where the future of car technology is heading.
Formula 1 cars are always brightly coloured and carry loads of sponsorship logos to pay for the incredibly expensive cars and racing. So why not pick your favourite team on the grid and colour your car to look like that, or come up with your own original creation. And when they’re done, why not tweet them at @racingcolour so I can put them on the gallery
