McLaren Brings Back Papaya Orange With Renault-Powered F1 auto

McLaren launched their MCL33 on Friday

The striking MCL33 will be among the most eye-catching on the grid having drawn direct inspiration from the team's iconic papaya orange and blue colour scheme that McLaren first raced with 50 years ago.

As last year's model is concerned, the MCL 33 is almost the same, but the auto is steeply raked, with a high rear end and a nose- down situation in the front.

With a new look and Renault power, McLaren hopes that its new F1 auto, the MCL33, will cure its poor run of form in the turbo hybrid era.

McLaren CEO Zak Brown believes the new-look vehicle can usher in a new era for the team. "I know just how important this vehicle is to the team, and I just hope that it delivers in the way we all want it to".

As expected, the new McLaren is an evolution of its predecessor.

Other than the halo, the big work involved reworking the engine compartment for the Renault power unit - the first time in McLaren's 52 years in F1 that the team has used a Renault engine. It's reasonable to guess that the next Ferrari Formula One vehicle will be red, the next Mercedes will be grey, the next Renault will be yellow, and the next Williams will be white.

"It eliminates the power unit and goes down to team and chassis and driver".

In 2018, McLaren's first yardstick will be their results relative to fellow Renault engine customers Red Bull as well as the Renault works outfit.

"And we definitely view 2018 as the year when McLaren will move closer to the front, fighting teams and drivers as we improve our fortunes". The team hopes you won't be able to miss the #14 and #2 cars emerging from the weeds they've been lost in for three years while under Honda power.

"The design, engineering and aerodynamic departments have done an incredible job delivering a new vehicle with a new power unit in an extremely short timeframe".

He added: "Our return to a papaya orange livery for this year wasn't simply an emotional decision; it demonstrates that we are listening to our fans, building deeper engagement with them and the Formula One community as a whole".

The auto was then officially unveiled by McLaren ahead of a filming day in Spain.

The Renault-powered MCL33 will be driven by Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne, again, this season.

"It's always a special moment when you drive the auto the first time", he beamed.
