McLaren MCL34 speculation thread

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

so pre-launch people say it looks outrageous?

Or is this just hype and hot air?
I don't think its just hype. Something different is surely there. However those "papaya" members that were invited to the pre launch usually are not technically savy. Maybe its just the livery that is different... Maybe not.
I bet livery is a mixture between MCL papaya orange and DELL blue and a pinch of BAT yellow/dark blue. It's a promising mix of colors.

Worst fan made livery I've seen. Looks like it was just thrown together in MS Paint 😜😜😜😜😜
In 2007 I had the chance to go to a meet-and-greet with an F1 test driver. I decided not to as I didn't think he'd even amount to much...he was the BMW Sauber test driver and his name was Sebastian Vettel...

Ok i will close the speculation Thread now since the official MCL34 Launch is about to happen.

The Car Thread will be opened once we have official Material to post, so there could be a few Minutes overlap with no active Car Thread. Of course we try to keep that Window as small as possible. So please bear with us.

Also please refrain from using the Team Thread as a makeshift Car Thread, it will only be a few Minutes until we collect Pictures and put them in our Gallery. Use this Time to sample your thoughts and post quality content. :mrgreen:
