Didn't BMW use Saubers name for a Le Mans race car to.

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.

Christ Eurowhite has arrived in F1 now...
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.
