McLaren MP4-22

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.

McLaren MP4-22

Post

The parts of the livery that will presumably be red have been concealed by tape, but here are some shots of the new McLaren.

It has number 1 written on it because of Alonso.. only a theory
Simon: Nils? You can close in now. Nils?
John McClane: [on the guard's phone] Attention! Attention! Nils is dead! I repeat, Nils is dead, ----head. So's his pal, and those four guys from the East German All-Stars, your boys at the bank? They're gonna be a little late.
Simon: [on the phone] John... in the back of the truck you're driving, there's $13 billon dollars worth in gold bullion. I wonder would a deal be out of the question?
John McClane: [on the phone] Yeah, I got a deal for you. Come out from that rock you're hiding under, and I'll drive this truck up your ass.

Number 1 is the perfect number for a Mclaren. Sadly I'm unable to see the rest of the car since it has been taped. :(

As I have an exam this afternoon, the news about the launch can be a bit later than normal, Tomba will try to put the news online as soon as possible from work and the rest will be online when I get back :wink:

It are indeed pics of the MP4-21, with the new vodafone livery! Alonso and Hamilton will drive around with that car at a street circuit in Valencia and than the new car will be launched!

Not very sure, but did somebody ever saw Alonso test with Mclaren in the winter? But I can assure you that the car with number 1 on it is Alonso's car. :wink:
