McLaren boss Zak Brown has promised Formula 1 fans will see “biggest change” of any team in their look for 2018 – but what does that mean for their new car, the MCL33?
The challenger, the first in the team’s 52-year history to be powered by Renault engines, is launched on Friday and the team has dropped repeated hints the car will feature the second change of livery in as many seasons – although this time of the more subtle variety.
Last year McLaren signaled a radical departure from their darker liveries of the previous two decades by going orange, a colour first associated with the team in the 1960s and 1970s. But some fans were left disappointed it wasn’t the same papaya shade used previously – particularly when it then appeared on Fernando Alonso’s Indy 500 car last May.
As the world count down to the launch of the MCLL3, what kind of car are you expecting to join McLaren’s distinctive – and varied – livery hall of fame? Express your passion in the comment session.
