McLaren Honda unveils MCL32 F1 contender

24 February 2017

McLaren Honda has revealed its 2017 contender for the Formula 1 World Championship – the MCL32 – marking a new era for the team.

Following the exit of former, long-time chairman Ron Dennis and the arrival of new executive director Zak Brown, McLaren has undergone substantial managerial changes.

Replacing the MP4, the MCL32 is the result of the championship’s new regulations, and will see the return of the marque’s more traditional, orange and black livery. Brown says it’s the colours “fans have been calling for”.

The Woking-based team, which finished sixth in last year’s constructors’ championship, is striving for success in 2017 thanks to new aerodynamic regulations and its revised driver line-up of Stoffel Vandoorne and two-time world champion Fernando Alonso.

Having cured a number of bugbears encountered throughout 2015, Honda is to retain its partnership with McLaren as its sole engine supplier, and is confident for success in the season ahead.
