First look at new McLaren livery

McLaren

McLaren has released the first pictures of the livery that the MP4-30 will run with from this weekend’s Spanish GP.

As previously reported the chrome/silver look that the car started the season with has now been replaced by darker hue, while there is also now more red.

Yesterday a team spokesman told this blog: “We have revised our car’s livery, improving its visual impact, optimising it for not only bright sunshine but also for the floodlights increasingly used in twilight and night races.

“The result is a dynamic, predatory, graphite-grey colouration, complemented by McLaren-dayglo ‘Speedmarks’ and keylines, reducing the reflection issues caused by our latest chrome-silver treatment.”

  1. HRT’s 2010 car is back on the grid!

    I like it, except for the red ‘speedmark’ on the upper nose, which doesn’t really work for me

    Lack of sponsorship makes it look more like prey than predator.

    I think at this point I’d be more worried about speed, and getting out of Q1, than livery if I was Ron D.

    It’s a big improvement, but not exactly a revolution. Not sure why they couldn’t have started the season with this livery…
