Not feeling the matte papaya orange. I prefer last years Mclaren livery as well but im sure they will fill this one up with more sponsors in time.

Ther Merc is gorgeous and the livery definitely fits this car than the W08 they showed earlier this week.

I was hoping the penis front nose went though but it's still there.

Need to see more bargeboard and rear shots.

Full schedule.

They might do what they did last year where the first car they showed was essentially a very early spec and it will look drastically different come testing and then Melbourne

I totally see why McLaren went with the blue sidepods... offers better contrast to satisfy their sponsors.
Can't wait to see how the matte papaya orange looks under the sun.

Floor and barge-boards looking very complex.
Sidepods are tight. Can't see the rear but packaging looks good too.

Livestream starting soon

I wonder if it's just a testing livery.

I preferred their testing one from last season with the camo.

Black racesuit is sweet though.

Looks great here.


Alison saying the engine department had a good winter and also in another interview he said they got the same amount of drag but more downforce.


Purple helmet for purple sectors. :lol:
I lvoe the look but it's going to be harder to tell the difference between him and Bottas in the car.

Is it me or does the car look shorter this year.

Also is that rake I see?

Looks like the top 3 cars have all converged. This season is going to be tight.

Hard to tell from that pic cuz the camera lens could have created a bit of distortion. Surely Merc posted the dimensions.
All the cars run some amount of rake... but some more than others... like RBR of course. We need more daylight shots!
