    No red vintage F1 cars?

    I didn't think this worthy of derailing any of the dlc type threads like the dlc discussion thread, but does anyone have any idea why there are no wholly red Vintage F1 cars?

    Was it a decision by Classic Team Lotus? a stipulation of Ferrari? Are we getting some Vintage F1 cars from Ferrari at a later date, so we don't want to get them confused with a red Lotus?
    We have Classic Lotus' in what I would call Matra blue, McLaren Orange, Tyrell blue, even a 98T which I think echo's a Benetton type scheme...…..

    Do I need my tinfoil hat?


    Where's the keys to my bunker again?

    There are several that look similar to old Brabhams and Williams as well, I would guess that there is some Ferrari intervention going on to be honest. I think if Ferrari F1 cars were to come that somebody somewhere would have noticed something to suggest it by now. Just think how much of the Season Pass was spotted in files etc long before those DLCs were announced

    i too noticed that and i'm very very sad to see that the "ferrari" liveries are gone...my fav f1 ever is the Ferrar 312 b2, and PC1 had an almost exact livery, which kinda felt like the real car once you puted in and drive it. Now, the livery still exists but in green colour...The same happened with the Lotus 78: gone are the days you could pretend you were Gilles Villeneuve...there is still a red livery but it has too much yellow in it...I believe the 98t still has a red livery?i dont drive much that car so i can't tell. The 49 never had a "ferrari" colours but still has a red/white/black that's kinda nice.I am 100% sure it has something to do with Ferrari coming to the game: The liveries/team names are still there, just in different colour...if they were bad they would be left out,right?
    Oh,and the lotus 25 sure needs a red livery aswell

    Well if we would get any dlc past this season pass, there are no files to show that currently. Also, no one foresaw the Ferrari challenge car we got as a freebie either......

    This is a genuine question and not a dig at the developers.
    Why have we not had any classic F1 DLC ?
    Is it not possible to include cars from defunct teams like Cooper, BRM or Honda ?
    I would have thought that late 60’s F1 Cars would have been pretty straightforward to model as they were very simplistic compared to modern cars.
    The lack of competition for the vintage Lotus cars has been the biggest disappointment of PC2 for me.

    don't really know, why they didn't add any old F1 car.
    But defunct teams, does not imply defunct license holders.
    Often such old licenses are in the hands of many different companies and holders are hard to find.
    Maybe FIA has their hands on it forever, with 500 years licenses

    On the other hand, i'm with you. So many great cars from the last century

    I was reading a pull out special booklet from motorsport magazine about the new Brabham BT62. Reading about David re-obtaining all the rights to the Brabham F1 name took him about 10 years and a lot of concerted effort.

    I'm pretty sure we knew about the car but it was definitely unexpected as a free car

    I remember that the 70's Ferrari Prototypes and the 250 GT were the last to be discovered which made it look like the 488 was part of the pack as we still had gaps
