Some of my favourite racing suits colours
(English is not my first language, so if there are any mistakes I apologise in advance)
Gilles' copper racing suit
Unfortunately he didn't wear it that much, because,if I remember correctly, orange and similar colours are reserved for marshalls, so he wore it only in 1977 when he raced at the British Grand Prix for Mclaren and later when he started racing for Ferrari in Niki's place.
It's a pity because it's such a energetic, warm and unique colour plus the combination with dark blue details is nice, not to mention it suited him so perfectly it accentuated his slim waist and his body shape in general.
p.s I still think Ferrari's fiery red was his colour.

Patrick's pastel blue racing suit
He's often seen wearing this racing suit around the time he was still racing for Tyrell, in particular the years in which he raced with the 'iconic' Tyrell P34 (1976-77), mostly remembered for its six wheels and innovative design.
To me Patrick is such a fascinating man, you would see him walking around the paddock confidently wearing his sunglasses and with a cigarette between his lips, you may get a little bit intimidated by this kind of confidence, you see this person as untouchable and unapproachable, but with this delicate colour everything softens.
Then he starts speaking, you would expect a rough or deep voice, no lol in reality he was just a soft spoken french man, so I think this colour kinda works for him.
(this is literally my favourite colour)

Keke's bright yellow racing suit
In the 1985 season, the Williams introduced their new car the Williams FW10, that's where this racing suit made its first appearance and i dare to say it's the first yellow one I think, I mean a full yellow racing suit.
The same point I made for Patrick applies as well for Keke: sunglasses, often wrapped in a cloud of smoke, an intimidating presence even, but after all he's finnish they're often portraited as cold and even a little bit detached.
In this case the bright yellow doesn't help much, it's like a punch in the face, right on the nose, his presence is percived even more and accentuates his strong personality.
I'll be honest I've never liked yellow that much, but it actually suits him, the red details+red racing boots are a nice touch and strangely his blond hair and the yellow of the suit are not a bad combination.

Elio's black & gold racing suit
In 1985 Lotus' black racing suits weren't that different from the previous year, but fortunately they changed all those white deatails into yellow/gold ones, the same colours of the Lotus 97T and never a better choice was made.
I can't imagine Elio in a bright red racing suit, or any bright colour in general, i would opt to darker shades, they're more classy, more professional, and this black and gold combination was wonderful, it suited him perfectly.

Ronnie's sapphire racing suit
I was undecided because both Ronnie and Keke at least once wore each a yellow or a blue racing suit in their time in F1 and they're both blond, so for Ronnie I opted for the blue one he wore in 1978.
Ronnie had literally both his racing suit and his helmet match the Swedish flag, and when he used both together it looked very good.
This dark shade of blue combined with his blond hair is *chef's kiss*, I always liked it as a combination in general, it creates such a nice contrast.
