Black & Gold livery for Haas?

Black & Gold may be back in Formula 1 next year as Rich Energy revealed a livery option for the Haas cars they will sponsor next year via the tweet to the right.

The colors hark back to the iconic JPS Lotus era, black cars with gold piping are etched in Formula 1 history. The likes of Mario Andretti, Ronnie Peterson, Emerson Fittipaldi, Jackie Ickx, Elio de Angelis, Nigel Mansell and Ayrton Senna had spells in black and gold.

The first time the black and gold livery broke cover was for the 1972 season as John Player Team Lotus and the final season in 1986 on the Lotus 98T.
