The blue and yellow livery design that is associated with Subaru is actually due to the 555 sponsorship
The 2014 season has been spectacular. We have seen mistakes from the drivers as they adjust to the increased torque output and the lower downforce levels which has made the racing as a whole, much closer and more unpredictable. If a driver slides the car out of a corner, which is more common this season, the tyres can be ruined in a split second by that one slight mistake, and they then have to change strategies for the race. It has made Formula One much more dynamic in our opinion and has really brought out the racers on the grid rather than those that can just drive and manage tyres, or those that had the best car and could drive it well when in clean air.
