McLaren become first F1 team to unveil 2024 look with new livery revealed.

McLaren have become the first Formula 1 team to unveil their 2024 look by revealing their livery for the upcoming season.

It features more papaya, which has been a staple of the colour scheme since 2018 in referring to their early cars, compared to last year’s livery. Anthracite is the other dominant colour – along with hints of chrome, the latter being a colour used more extensively by the team from 2006 to 2014.

The 2024 challenger will be named the MCL38 and is due to break cover on February 14, when the team complete a shakedown at Silverstone. It will then head to Bahrain for pre-season testing, which begins on February 21.

“We’re delighted to launch our 2024 Formula 1 livery ahead of the new season,” said McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown. “The design looks awesome, and I can’t wait to go racing and see it come to life on track next month.

“We didn’t start 2023 as we wanted but Andrea and the team did a great job following the organisational restructure coming into action, and the hard work continues as we carry that excellent momentum into the 2024 campaign.
