With the horror days of Hondas problems behind them, McLarens Formula 1 efforts can now re-focus with a Renault powertrain on board, a new colour scheme and one of the best drivers behind the wheel. McLaren have had a nightmare run since teaming up with Honda back in 2015. Since then the team has failed to win a single race, or get a podium or even finish most races. What was once a very successful partnership between the two companies back in the 1980’s, turned into a bottomless pit of failed promises.

Now with a Renault built engine, McLaren can finally prove what they have saying for the past three years. That they have a chassis that can mix it with the best. One driver who will certainly get the most of the car is double world champion Fernando Alonso, who has stuck around and has another year alongside his young team mate Stoffel Vandoorne.

“The MCL33 represents a fresh chapter for McLaren – one that clearly embraces our evocative history while also serving to guide our future,” said Shaikh Mohammed bin Essa Al Khalifa, Executive Chairman and Executive Committee Principal, McLaren Group. “We may have faced a tricky last few years, but this team has demonstrated time and time again that it emerges stronger from each and every challenge. And, for 2018, it’s not merely the colour of the car that marks the change: there’s a determination and commitment that exists within everyone who works at McLaren, and we’re fighting stronger than ever to return to the front.”
