It's nice to see that McLaren now have the ability to test before the start of the official tests, various little things in preparation can be run on them, and on the main tests to focus on working with the new car.
I think the blue adds really well to the orange. Any livery they come up with this year can’t be worse than last year’s Lego car tbh.
I'm with lucky, I don't enjoy the lighter blue at all, much prefer a darker shade, but then I've never like the Sky Blue football shirts of Man City or Coventry City either, the colour just bothers me!
Darker blue and Orange though is gorgeous.

The MCL35/35M had good colours, but I absolutely hate matte paint on cars. It just screams teenager energy to me, like something you made in NFS when you were 14. The livery itself on the 35/35M also just made an already long car look even longer, somehow. I really do hope they steer the team branding away from the matte neon orange/neon light blue in the near future. As of now there's not a single McLaren livery in all their racing portfolio I actually like, and it's a bit of a shame.
