To promote British American Tobacco's popular 555 brand, all team members, including all three drivers, will be wearing special blue overalls and clothing throughout what's already a milestone event for B.A.R, its partners and all involved in F1. Adding to the stunning new look, the B.A.R pit garage in Shanghai will also be showcased by new blue 555 hordings.

Completing the picture, Anthony Davidson's test car has been finished in distinctive new 555 livery which includes chinese lettering. Anthony's blue car is sure to be a major attraction and talking point during both of Friday's two Free Practice sessions.

Meanwhile, though still predominantly white, the two B.A.R Honda race cars as driven by Jenson Button and Takuma Sato, will also feature prominent 555 branding in place of their traditional Lucky Strike roundals.
