    well, Shell feel that having the shell as per the design it once was long ago is retro enough for their interest only.

    Their past Shell based liveries have always been similar and they've done a few already.

    The retro Shell logo is a throw back to the 60's.

    didn't I say that lol, 1955.
    Most major corporate designs are similar - they keep consistency as we know.

    What is the point of retro round?
    was good the first one or two, but now teams clutching at straws
    Really hard to be retro, and keep exiting sponsors happy too

    Yep, nearly impossible to do retro while looking after the current Sponsors.

    Probably been done too often now, most of the iconic liveries already done.

    What the hell is the T8/HRT livery copying?

    Does it though?

    I wouldnt buy a one off retro top.

    Do they even sell retro stuff?

    The Changing livery's that some teams have used was an expensive flop too.

    Cost a lot of money re doing wraps and people didn't know what their team looked like round to round.

    I'm not anti the retro thing as a nod to the past and a bit of an PR stunt, but I have to admit I don't really like the idea of the car I have been following all year to change livery for the biggest races of the year. There are times however when the retro livery change is actually better than the one it replaces.

    Some examples include:

    For me, I loved the retro Bottle O livery. At bathurst, it was one if not the best livery on that day. Unfortunately, could get past Whincup for the win.

    What we need DJR is to bring back blue XD livery.
