As slick, professional and safe race suits are these days, there seems to me to be a lack of identity behind the overalls of modern Formula One.
Given the large budgets and high levels of team dependency that seem to characterise the sport these days, it's understandable that recognisable team apparel has become a prerequisite of F1 racing.
Of course, throughout the years a team has always been distinguishable from its rivals in one way or another, whether it be through using the racing colours of its country of origin, sponsorship or team clothing.
So, while overalls may have become cooler (and let's face it, they have done a stellar job at mating safety with style and comfort), here's a throwback to times of simpler constructions and simpler designs.
Less, as they say, can often be more.
