McLaren Launch 2019 Formula 1 Car



McLaren’s new MCL34 car has been unveiled for the 2019 Formula 1 season.

The new MCL34 remains the papaya colour but with blue added at the front and rear.

Zak Brown, Chief Executive, told Sky Sports News “We just want to see a good step forward from where we were last year.”

“We didn’t develop a very good race car, we’ve certainly got higher hopes for this year’s car. But it’s hard to tell until you get out there. The competition is only getting tougher in this sport.”

“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.”

Finishing 6th in last year’s Constructors’ Championship, McLaren admitted their car’s performance fell a long way short of expectations.

For the first time since 2007, McLaren start the season with an all-new line up.

Over the past 12 months, McLaren’s management and leadership structure have undergone numerous changes. Under leadership of Zak Brown, Gil de Ferran (former racing driver) begins his first full season as sporting director, Pat Fry has returned as Engineering Director, former Porsche sportscar boss, Andreas Seidl, is joining the tole of Managing Director in May and James Key is to joining the team as Technical Director at some point in 2019.

Zak Brown added, “We’re in a rebuilding process and it’s going to be a journey.”
