Pretty in pink?

That’s not only the name of that 1986 Molly Ringwald movie (it’s been more than 30 years already??) but it’s now a question the Force India F1 team will have to answer.

That’s because ahead of the new season, they’ve changed their colors to – pink.

The major overhaul came after a sponsorship change, so you’ll now see the Best Water Technology Group (BWT) logo on the VJM10 cars. Not only that, the cars will no longer be in silver and black, but – pink.


Team owner Vijay Mallya said, in several media reports: “For 2017 our cars will sport a vibrant new colour scheme with a smart matte finish. Changing the colour of our cars is an indication of the strength of this new partnership.”

We’ll see how fans respond to the new color, but one ex-Force India driver made it clear what he thought of the change.
