Zak Brown is really showing this commercial base with this series. Probably on of the additional sources of income.

Probably not an indication of team colours as such, but McLaren sticking to their black and silver/grey vibes for teamwear at least.

that's pretty cool. i think it would look cooler in red, but still.
good sign, Mclaren putting deed to the word of 'visibly being great again' also in the paddock.
Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.

After seeing the documentary, people will probably finally understand why McLaren left Honda. Speedmark looks cool.

At least they havent spent any aditional funds for breaking the engines...Honda made sure malfunctions were right on que.
If i would get the money to start my own F1 team, i would revive Arrows

McLaren may be right or wrong to leave Honda, but they have made a choice that leaves them no excuses going forward. They've decided to go racing again rather than doing engine development every weekend. They are putting their butts on the line in a way that rarely happens in F1. I'm now their biggest fan. Onward and upward.

Reuters:

Brown, a marketing expert who joined McLaren after the departure from the helm of long-standing boss Ron Dennis,
said two of the team’s three fresh sponsors were new to the sport.

Any rumors on who it can be ??

Given the documentary tie-in and their global expansion, I would not be surprised if Amazon Prime was one of them

Amazon as a tech partner, Kimoa, and Petrobras?

I'm not so sure about Kimoa.
It offcourse could be announced as such, but i feel like it due to being Alonso's brand, not to be such 'big' assett and as such 'mentionable' in the same breath, even though that sounds a bit harsh.
Petrobras is a big sponsor, Amazon would be too. Kimoa? nah. Yes it's new to the sport, but still.

I also read something about Movistar, but since there's a mention about 2 being new and the third not, which probably be Petrobras,
i'd find it odd if that one would be mentioned too.

Unless it's not Petrobras but Movistar which will be announced soon. Or could be Telefonica?
Wasn't Movistar or Telefonica part of Renault when Alonso was there?

Indeed, Telefónica used to be a sponsor back in the Renault days.
