    So, today is the day that we get a first look at the 2016 livery (albeit shown on a 2015 car!)

    Stay tuned!

    Did the other Tag Heuer stickers not dry from printing at the time of release?

    A bit surprised that the TH brand/logo is not as prominently displayed as I hoped for. :unsure:

    Here's the 2015 car...is "TAG Heuer" any smaller than "Renault"? I say maybe smaller font, but longer (and includes logo)

    Excellent point. However, it would have been nicer to get it where the INFINITI logo lived. Wishful thinking, I guess. ;)

    Makes sense to have the sponsorship adjacent to the engine, no? The overall matt finish of the car is very strange. Very different.

    IWC have been getting some fantastic promotion from their product placement on the gloves of Hamilton and Rosberg. I wonder if Ricciardo and Kvyat will have similar gloves sporting a "virtual" TH??

    The Tag Heuer logo is hampered by the emblem; Renault is a stand alone word, hence it can afford to be bigger.

    None of the less, with the new livery, the branding is quite discrete and it looks like a regular sponsor not an official team partner.

    Exactly, that's why I was expecting a more prominent placement, or at least a larger size.

    Not a great shot, but you can just make out here that the drivers have the TAG Heuer logo on their left-hand shoulder

    Yes, because clearly Red Bull need to worry about bird poop and tree sap destroying the matt finish.

    certainly not as large a problem now that Maldonado is off the track ;)
