    Cool WRC - Qatar M-Sport WRT reveals colours for 2013

    The Qatar M-Sport World Rally Team unveiled its livery today for the 2013 World Rally Championship.

    Mads Ostberg, the squad's lead driver, along with M-Sport managing director Malcolm Wilson and Castrol Sponsorship manager, Donald Smith pulled the wraps off the Ford Fiesta RS WRC at the Autosport International Racing Car Show in Birmingham, where the new design was presented to the public for the first time.

    “Strongly identified by the deep burgundy widely associated with the State of Qatar, the new livery has been designed to be easily recognisable both on and off the stages,” read a statement from the former Ford works team.

    “The new design also showcases the support of team and trade partners. Castrol EDGE, Michelin and Icepeak are strongly represented as is the Ford Motor Company which will continue to provide technical support throughout the season.”

    The new-look design will adorn the Ford Fiesta RS WRC cars of Ostberg, Evgeny Novikov, Thierry Neuville and Juho Hanninen as the team makes its competitive debut at Rallye Monte-Carlo next week.

    Also running the new livery will be the Fiesta RS WRC of Nasser Al-Attiyah who begins his 2013 campaign on the snow-covered stages of Rally Sweden in February.

    “The entire team has put a great amount of time and effort into our programme for 2013 and the reveal of the new livery is the result of that commitment,” said Wilson. “The design reflects the fantastic support we continue to enjoy from our team and trade partners – without whom this would not have been possible.

    “Everyone in the team is looking forward to seeing the car on the stages as well as the new challenges ahead.”

    Sovereign Wealth Funds from the Middle East and developing world are some of the largest investors these days as well as one of the only sources of somewhat reliable discretionary spending/investment of multiple millions. I am a bit surprised we haven't seen more SWF money in Formula 1 at this point to be honest.

    You DO realize that that's the color of their flag, right?

    Looks more purple than brown...

    Regardless, it's hardly a dynamic or attractive colour scheme.
