I quite like the image. So I have changed it. Will be interested to see what others feel.

Dont mind it, and i did notice a change, but seemingly just in the font. I cant for the life of me recall the old one now though!

Thanks Andrew , well the font and the Martini Stripes as well as the Logo, when the FW40 comes out I'll make a updated one with the new car and driver edited style numbers or helmets winking smiley

Cardoso, if you can, get some retro williams on one side and new on the other. That would be cool, just dont use the winfield red car! Haha.

Lol this is just a provisional cover until the FW40 comes out, the image space is very limited and there's not much room to add many things, I just sent Andrew the revised cover and will see what can be done about that.
I'm just a guy who likes to work in this kind of things, and williams is a passion for me.

I must be the only one that actually loves the Winfield red Williams. But okay.

Great work Cardoso! And awesome Andrew that you are so willing to listen to user input. That defines a great admin to me. Thanks! Keep it up!

Overall nice execution! If it was me, I would make a couple of minor tweaks, Use Futura instead of the Eurostile Font and center "SUPPORTERS" under "Williams". You can close the gap slightly so "SUPPORTERS" doesn't impede with the stripes.

It's Microgramma font phatjack and The "W" is the original Williams logo not a font. I only add an overlay of martini stripes in the final section of the logo.
About the small corrections I already sen't a revised cover to Andrew with a bigger SUPPORTERS lettering that's not overlaying the stripes and and a bit of shadow has the previous one.
About the lettering being centered I have to disagree, this way (left adjusted) is a better solution and cleaner.

Micrograma and Eurostile are very similar typefaces created by the same person. I stand corrected.

The '98 Winfield one is a beauty imo. Being oddball was the best bit.

The Winfield no please, It's neither a Williams DNA car or didn't even left a mark in Williams history other than the oddness of a Williams red car.

Cars for the history books as suggestions (I'll put years, might not get all the FWs bang on)...
1979 (first win)
1980 (first title)
1987
1989 (start of the Renault era, maybe worth thinking about?)
1992
1996
1997 (last title, and had to include JV's title winner in my list)
2003
2014

Thumbs up!

I'd combine the Saudia car with the FW40... kind of a picking up where we started hard and took off in the beginning.

To new beginnings!

Thanks Rumblestrip but I can΄t take full credits for the graphics that appear in this forum, this was actualy my first contribution in terms of image editing for the forum.
I work in the area and I do have some ideas in terms of design and graphics and like I΄m a diehard fan of williams I do like to make this kind of things in my spare time.

That's looking sweet Cardoso. You picked the '78 car, right?
