Special liveries are becoming a bit more frequent in Formula 1. Be it McLaren's Gulf livery for Monaco or the upcoming Honda tribute that Red Bull will be running in Turkey this weekend.
However, rarely do they come to the Formula 1 game. It's tricky to create a livery in the game that is a perfect replica, and to do it just for a limited time is not always the best use of resources. Well, that's about to change.
Latest news - White Red Bull out now!
The latest update for F1 2021 has given players the chance to race in the glorious white Red Bull, which scored a double-podium in Turkey last weekend.
The livery will only be available until 15 November, so don't miss out on your chance to race it!

Red Bull's Honda tribute
Initially meant to run at the Japanese Grand Prix, Red Bull is running a special livery for their departing engine partner Honda.
Honda became the first engine supplier to win a race with multiple constructors in Monza last year, and has powered Max Verstappen's title charge this year, Red Bull's first serious title challenge since 2013.
Fans were excited to see the unveiling, but never thought it would come to the game, until now.
This glorious white livery will be coming to the game next week, presumably in Update 1.12 which will also include multiplayer fixes.
What about the Gulf livery?
Players have been clamouring for McLaren's ultra-popular Gulf livery to be put in the game. Some have tried to recreate it in the game, others have managed to mod the PC version to get it, but racers everywhere want it.
So will we get it? It would be bizarre to have this white Red Bull in the game and not also add the Gulf livery too. Maybe Codemasters struck a deal with Red Bull that McLaren were unwilling to also strike, but maybe we will be getting the Gulf one too.
Fans will just have to wait.
What about Imola?
The second new track for F1 2021, Imola, is slated to arrive at some point in October. With an update for the game clearly planned next week we could get Imola too.
It would be awesome to take the white Bull through Tamburello and Acque Minerali, but players may have to wait a few more weeks to do so.
We know Imola is coming, we just don't know when.
