McLaren have revealed a special, tweaked livery with which their drivers Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri will contest the forthcoming Singapore and Japan Grands Prix on the next two weekends.
The livery was designed by McLaren Racing and OKX, a Web3 technology company that serves as Official Primary Partner of the Woking-based outfit. The new design is referred to as Stealth Mode livery that will sport McLaren's two race cars in Singapore and Suzuka.
The Stealth Mode livery will switch McLaren’s livery colourway, augmenting black against the team’s classic papaya trim. The special-liveried MCL60 was revealed in Stealth Mode today at an exclusive media event in Singapore at Lantern, Fullerton Bay Hotel. The event was attended by OKX Chief Marketing Officer Haider Rafique, McLaren F1 Team drivers Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri, and McLaren Racing Executive Director, Partnerships & Accelerator, Matt Dennington.
A limited-edition T-Shirt will be made available through the McLaren Store, and at a limited giveaway for attendees of Token2049, the Web3 conference taking place in Singapore prior to the race.
To bring fans closer to Stealth Mode, OKX will host a McLaren-themed fan zone, OKX Race Club, at Chijmes, Singapore. The OKX Race Club will run from Thursday, 14 September to Sunday, 17 September, featuring a Stealth Mode show car, racing simulators, giveaways and surprise guests over the race weekend. Lando Norris will make an appearance on opening day, Thursday, 14 September, at 19:20 SGT.
Zak Brown, CEO, McLaren Racing, said: “Our partnership with OKX goes from strength to strength, and it’s fantastic to celebrate it with this incredible livery. Stealth Mode flips our race car’s colours, bringing something exciting and different to these two great races in Singapore and Japan.
"We hope fans will love it as much as we do and get a chance to enjoy the fan zone to connect with our team. OKX are a dedicated supporter of McLaren’s journey, and in turn we’re proud to bring our partnership to life on track through the global platform of Formula 1.”
Commenting on the new livery, Haider Rafique, Chief Marketing Officer, OKX, said: "Success on the track, and in the Web3 world, is only possible through teamwork, creativity and innovation. Stealth Mode is inspired by these common principles.
"It’s also a way for us to celebrate the return of F1 to the Asia Pacific region, which is the epicentre of Web3 in many ways. As Stealth Mode hits the track this weekend we wish the best of luck to Lando and Oscar in what we hope will be a strong performing MCL60."
