McLaren is the latest brand to take off covers from its all new 2019 car. The 2019 Renault powered MCL34, continues to feature its iconic papaya orange colour with accents of new blue elements. The team dedicated the new livery to the team’s broader racing heritage. However, for the first time in 12 years of McLaren Formula 1 racing history, the company has an entire new driver lineup.
Ex Renault power Formula One racer, Carlos Sainz has joined the team along with F1 rookie Lando Norris as his partner. The car will make its debut at the first pre season test at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Spain next week.
In an effort to make an impressive domination this year, McLaren has added few bilgiest in its team. Starting with James Key who was earlier Toro Rosso technical director, will now be McLaren’s new technical chief. Additionally, former Porsche World Endurance Championship head, Andreas Seidl, is appointed as the team’s MD.
Speaking about the drastic changes made to the entire team setup and new line up, Zak Brown, McLaren Racing’s CEO, said, “The MCL34 is the result of an immense amount of hard work and dedication throughout our team. We’re all committed, motivated and united in our ambition to return McLaren to competitiveness, and the MCL34 is only the start of this process. We have a fresh driver pairing, who together represent the new generation of Formula 1 talent, and are an integral part of the team and our collective effort to advance McLaren forward.”
