Side pods and cockpits, so must be a high value deal, not necessarily cash, but importance to the McLaren Group

How many sponsors will they have on the side pods and cockpits!! Could coca-cola be similar to last year in that they remain on the website until launch day and then are removed then? At least the cars will look full, hopefully the additional money is being utilised correctly

Maybe going down the Ferrari approach? I would have thought Coca-Cola would have left by now, I would expect they are staying...

But they’re rumors that Mercedes after being conservative the last two years had made great progress this year

So let’s see... I think they will fight for best engine with Ferrari

And I think it will let Honda and Renault a bit more distant than 2019
Yeah, read an article just now saying that Mercedes were conservative with their PU these last couple of years. Let's see what they come up with.
Mercedes were deliberately conservative with their PU.. just because.. sure. :)
The way I always read it was that Mercedes prioritised reliability over outright performance, so effectively had something in reserve in terms of power developments, but didn't want to risk the poor reliability they could bring.
Lando Norris: "Such a great driver"
Daniel Ricciardo: "Darren" 🤣

Carlos: "I have seen the Aero, but haven't seen the livery, have you seen the livery?"
Cameraman: "Yeah"
Carlos: "And? There was some big chan..."
Cameraman: "Shhhh"

Haha. Interesting.

Top 10, as in Q3 contenders? Because there are only 10 teams...

Well when it comes to Lando and his type of humor it might mean the top 10 teams :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

but jokes aside, yes probably he is speaking about Q3

True, I wouldn’t put it passed Lando being cheeky and saying something like that especially if whoever is asking is pressing hard to get an answer... “OK, we’ll definitely be in the top 10” :lol: :lol:

McLaren are revealing their IndyCar at 11am EST today. I'm curious how similar it's going to be to the F1 car. Their IndyCar last year was basically the MCL34 livery exactly, but given how they hype up F1 car launches I can't imagine they would reveal the livery first on the IndyCar.

Yeah I wouldn’t have thought the livery’s will be similar, maybe the number style will be though..
