McLaren, as we know, are making a lot of announces at the minute. And this is certainly the one we’ve been waiting for…

Now, there is a lot to learn about this car still. But what we do know is that it’s orange.
The new car livery was designed by a collective group at Honda and was ultimately down to what the fans wanted. We asked for orange, and we got it.
It was made clear at the launch that the main focus for McLaren Honda was winning championships, and we really hope that they can come back fighting, but Alonso may not be so sure.
As we know, the two drivers that will be sitting on the grid in these cars for the 2017 season are Fernando Alonso and the newly promoted Stoffel Vandoorne.
Both of these drivers were at the launch and interviewed on the live stream.
I’m sure many of you tuned into the livestream as they unveiled the car, but in case you didn’t, check out the entire reveal here.
