New colour and engine for 2018 F1 season

F1 Mc Laren reveals papaya-orange MCL33 2018 F1 car

Alonso had been linked with a move away from McLaren during the misery of 2017, when he repeatedly slammed the underperforming vehicle and the relationship with Honda.

Swapping to Renault power for 2018 after parting ways with Honda, McLaren will run the exact same engine as Red Bull, and also Renault's works team.

As expected, the MCL33 features a striking new livery, with the McLaren colour scheme reverting to the papaya orange of the team's early years.

"The MCL33 represents a fresh chapter for McLaren - one that clearly embraces our evocative history while also serving to guide our future", said Shaikh Mohammed bin Essa Al Khalifa, the McLaren Group executive chairman and executive committee principal. "The last few years makes a very united team, a very strong team and we will see the first results this year".

The Renault-powered vehicle, bearing the iconic papaya orange and blue colour scheme that McLaren first raced in Formula 1 50 years ago, will be driven by Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne.

"Looking at our new vehicle, I feel incredibly excited - but also apprehensive".

After jumping out of the vehicle following his filming run, Alonso was beaming as he spoke about the first run, hailing it as an important moment for the team after a long winter working on the new model.

California has a " sanctuary state" policy, in which the state openly refuses to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

'[But] this year, we went beyond to get a neat and tidy packaging solution. Making the switch had a big impact on the installation of the engine.

"Everything feels good. Really looking forward to doing a proper lap now at full speed, but so far, good, a special moment". That was two weeks of intense effort to get right.

"We have strong leadership, hugely experienced and talented people, new partners, and motivated, exciting racers behind the wheel. We're going to come out pushing, and we're going to be racing as hard as ever".

"Whether it's been with fearless drivers, courageous leaders or courageous fortune, this team has always fought back".

Mansour Ojjeh says it is extremely important for the McLaren F1 Team to re-establish themselves on the track this season, especially after three years in the doldrums with Honda.

The vehicle was due to make its track debut at a filming day in Spain today before testing starts in Barcelona on Monday.
