The cars of the new American Formula One team are likely to be painted predominantly blue, according to US F1 principal Ken Anderson.

The Charlotte-based outfit is set to debut in 2010 with the slogan 'Made in America', raising expectations the single seaters might resemble the stars and stripes of the US flag.

But Anderson told the German website motorsport-total.com that such a cluttered livery might not be ideal for the accompanying sponsor logos.

"There are two scenarios: either we have a sponsor who requires a certain colour scheme, or we go back to the liveries of the racing cars of the 60s," said Anderson.

"At that time British cars were green, German cars were silver, Italian cars were red -- and American (cars were) blue," he explained.
