McLaren MCL35 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.

Don't mean to be rude, but there are people who are employed in the business for years and can barely deduce any important information from that picture. Doubt some sport enthusiast would do better.

Bet a certain Mr Dennis felt a tremor in the force when that milk bottle was left on display.
Hmm. I too have noticed in the MTC photos of late, that the place is not as neat as when Ron Dennis was around. Even the Klipshe speakers had messy wiring strewn on the floor and random stuff nearby. Would never happen under Ron.
Not driving a Mercedes? Work harder!

Maybe not having the staff on edge all the time about were they put a screwdriver while they are working has helped moral levels.

I kind of agree with this..... but warm milk is all kinds of wrong on many levels. Looking at the orange sheeting with grey duct tape, I quite like that colour combo, never really took to the blue.

Not your fault, just pointing out it's just a fluff piece by the PR team.

Yeah, Lando, the lad is a master at social media (PR team must love him) - though maybe the management edged him on to tweak Dennis just a bit!

I hope not. More Black, less Papaya doesn't seem like a good idea to me.

I think they look good but do hope to see more papaya on the MCL35.

Black seems to be the new Black this year.

I believe that the predominance of black on the Arrow/Mclaren Indy car is because of Arrows predominantly black car in the past and simply a way to show the combination of both teams liveries.

The MCL35 probably will still be predominantly papaya
