McLaren set for livery change in 2015

TEST F1/2015

McLaren CEO Ron Dennis has revealed that the team’s 2015 livery will change, but refused to confirm when that will be.

The Woking-based squad unveiled the Honda-powered MP4-30 earlier this week featuring a black and chrome livery, with flashes of red.

However, Dennis confirmed to the media on Sunday in Jerez that the car’s current livery is not its definitive colour scheme.

“Our 2015 livery will change, but I’m not going to say when,” Dennis said.

Following Dennis’ comments, McLaren took to Twitter to ask fans whether they would prefer a switch to the team’s original papaya orange, which it used its in earliest years in the sport, or to the iconic red and white colours of long-term partner Marlboro, whose livery it carried when it last partnered Honda from 1988 to 1992.

McLaren endured a taxing first day of testing in 2015, with Fernando Alonso completing just six laps of running at the wheel of the Honda-powered MP4-30.
