I like how Team Lotus added yellow for Renault at the rear. :)

I think both the Lotus and Sauber look like decent car, anxious about what their speed is...

Meh, so far all the cars look too similar... :(

Was hoping for the Sauber to be black or dark metallic blue. It's actually pretty boring in this white and black scheme...

The (Lotus) Renault has the nicest livery so far. I'm really a fan of the gloss black and gold. The red of Total is a bit misplaced, but still a very very nice livery.

The Sauber looks like an Indycar with all those different colors on, yellow, white, red, black, light blue, dark blue - pretty weird.

The icing on the cake would be a black or orange McLaren livery, that would be :n
But won't happen.

Lotus Renault looks great

Sauber is too OTT with all the sponsors just thrown around on the car. It is good they've got more money now though!

I truely dislike the rear of these F1 cars, the way it slopes in together onto the floor beneath the wing...
