As the next generation of F1 kicks off, all ten teams have revealed their new liveries for the 2022 season.
The new looks have arrived and the cars have hit the track. The Barcelona three-day test gave fans and rivals, their first chance to see all ten cars on display. While there are numerous initial bodywork differences, the liveries have been building the F1 hype for the past few weeks. With Alfa Romeo being revealed on Sunday, we now know what each team is running for 2022.
1 – Mercedes

After running a predominately black livery for each of the last two seasons, the Silver Arrows are back. The prominent silver nose and teal accents usher in Mercedes’ next era in F1 with the arrival of George Russell.
2 – Red Bull

Opted for images from the Barcelona test this past week as it was the first real look at the new Red Bull. The new F1 car body shape brings the biggest change to the look rather than any dramatic shift in the livery itself.
3 – Ferrari
It’s finally here 😍
— Scuderia Ferrari (@ScuderiaFerrari) February 17, 2022
Gone are the green markings on the rear section of the body and a return to a more classic Ferrari red. Their side pods are getting lots of chatter, but once again they deliver a solid livery with this iconic brand.
4 – McLaren
— McLaren (@McLarenF1) February 11, 2022
Keeping the Papaya and adding in some Sky Blue. An impressive look, but one that seems to suit both drivers – Lando Norris & Daniel Ricciardo. The front wing switches to papaya, the rear wing is now light blue versus black, and the nose has a blue outline, giving it a sleeker look.
5 – Alpine
— BWT Alpine F1 Team (@AlpineF1Team) February 21, 2022
For the first two F1 races, Alpine will run a predominately pink livery due to their new BWT partnership. For the remainder of the season, the French team will have the look above. There were split opinions after their reveal, but that car is going to look amazing on night circuits!
6 – AlphaTauri
what. a. stunner! 🔥 putting the AT03 on track where it belongs 😎
— Scuderia AlphaTauri (@AlphaTauriF1) February 14, 2022
We had to wait until track images were released to get a full look at the new AlphaTauri. This could be the cleanest look in F1 this year. The dark blue and white is striking. While the team has made improvements to styling and placement of the team name and logo.
7 – Aston Martin
— Formula 1 (@F1) February 10, 2022
In their second year running the Aston Martin colors, Lawrence Stroll’s team has introduced the bright yellow highlights. The switch from the red lines is probably the most noticeable visual difference.
8 – Williams
Your FW44, ready for the challenges of 2022 💪 pic.twitter.com/4rXOwFaMyI
— Williams Racing (@WilliamsRacing) February 15, 2022
A switch from last year’s white nose to this year’s blue one is a welcome change. The back of the car has also shifted from vertical stripes to the argyle light and dark blue pattern. An improvement by the design team, can the drivers do the same on the track this season?
9 – Alfa Romeo
— Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN (@alfaromeoorlen) February 27, 2022
Alfa Romeo’s 2022 look brings a more red-focused livery. The solid red and white sections give this year’s car a more distinct design that will be more visible on track. The rear wing nod to the Italian flag is the perfect cap to this look and one the team will be hoping more drivers have a view of this season.
10 – Haas
— Haas F1 Team (@HaasF1Team) February 25, 2022
Initially, the first team to reveal their 2022 look, the livery come race one might be quite different. In light of the current Russian invasion of Ukraine, Haas has removed the Uralkali name and colors. The team may continue with this mostly black and white look, or if Uralkali is permanently removed from the team, a new lead sponsor and livery could debut in the coming weeks. The Russian GP has also been cancelled.
Formula 1 kicks off the 2022 season on March 20th with the Bahrain Grand Prix.
