Two hours after the presentation of the Ferrari in Fiorano McLaren based in Woking, has introduced its new machine, received index MCL32.
Presentation of the British stables was one of the most anticipated in the current season. Last but not least this was due to the intrigue surrounding the change of livery, which was to become the most serious for McLaren over the past 20 years.
Over the past few weeks, the network had published countless renderings of what will be coloring. The team, however, kept secret until recently. Only now we can say for sure: McLaren is back to its historical orange blossoms.
From the technical features, first and foremost, it is worth noting an interesting design of the front wing, especially in the area of attachment, and the interesting flaps on the rear wing, as well as the solution in the region of the deflectors. As in other new cars, the McLaren MCL32 there is shark fin and the protruding part on the nose cone.
Over the past five years, the team from Woking only once finished on the podium at the Grand Prix of Australia-2014 – and the previous two seasons finished in ninth and sixth place in the constructors ‘ championship respectively. Of course, in 2017, McLaren aims to further progress, but to talk about returning to the leading group is not in a hurry.
