As rumours swirled around that the end of their Vodafone title sponsorship and imminent parting of ways with Mercedes would mean a radical change in livery for McLaren, the Woking team unveiled their new MP4-29 this morning – and just as unlike the rumours had correctly incorrectly predicted, the car was in an amazingly fetching shade of orange exactly the same boring silver they’ve had for several years.
The bold new direction exactly the same direction as before only with most of the interesting bits removed was further enhanced by being emblazoned with the team’s new title sponsor barely any sponsorship logos whatsoever. It’s also pleasing annoying that the team have finally decided to set their car apart from that of Mercedes continue to have their car look exactly the bloody same as the Mercedes.
The orange silver car is also an uncharacteristic move exactly what you would have expected now that Ron “Interesting” Dennis is back in charge of the team. We can’t wait to see await with resigned boredom how the car will change further look exactly the same once the Honda era begins in 2015.
