No. The Le Mans cars were Saubers (thats what they did before coming to F1) with initially BMW engines and then later and much more successfully Mercedes - with which they both entered F1 together in 1993.

Oh, thanks for correcting me.

I just thought of that, because I had seen the Sauber on Gran Turismo 4.

Its far to white. They need to add some more blue to it.

I still prefer the orange Mclaren - wish it would stay that colour.

not a real surprise though - if you look at BMW racing cars such as the touring cars its a similar sort of thing.

it is similar to the williams livery they had

I have just seen another picture of it on ITV-F1, and it doesn't look so bad from that angle, but I still think its too white.
