Excellent idea Sauber! A single sheet would work, and be cost effective!

Driver's names would be: Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Dan Gurney, John Surtees, Lorenzo Bandini, Chris Amon, Jack Brabham, Denis Hulme, Jackie Stewart, Jo Siffert, etc.

I would keep the drivers' names in that order Maybe for added detail a few rows of rivets would be useful along with a front grill that could be cut to shape.

I'll just be glad if you'll finish this year's liveries, I've got two pretty butt-neked black bodies sitting over here waiting on Lotus stickers.....

Default 60's F1 Pics

Don't know if this has been posted before but there are some pics of F1 cars from each decade. The VF1 era is actually only 67 and 68 because of the smaller cars before 67 and wings after 68 but the basic cars are similar and the paint jobs and decals would work.

As you can see, the cars were very plain during most of the 60's with only a couple of stickers, if any, until the end of the decade when Lotus pretty much ended the traditional practice of cars being painted in colors representing their country.

I'm not sure it was a gift. Its a little bulky in the nose and not as detailed as the tamiya bodies but it fits well and looks good on track.
