Its very complicated and involves many different people in committees and focus groups, once a decision is made, then the exact colour has to be mixed in special aerodynamic paint and this costs millions. This is F1 after all.

Two reasons. Firstly, their priority is on how fast the car goes and not what colour it is. Secondly it is nigh on impossible to get an F1 fan to actually like anything.

I like it.

Hamilton likes the new McLaren. This from Alonso's Instagram page...

If tenths posters are in harmony with the rest of the world then the vast majority approve of the new McLaren scheme.....

Perhaps that unwritten space on the side pods is being saved for a title sponsor!

I read somewhere that Renault admitted the car 'launched' is the 2017 car with the 2018 livery and the new car wont be seen until Barcelona testing. A few people in the know with the look pointed it out, forcing the admission. Cant find the story again mind you.

it was more the colour scheme i was drooling over, predominantly black cars usually look a bit odd in motion.

Gary Anderson suggested this might be the case after the initial reveal. Autosport’s current headline story is that that Renault admit this https://www.autosport.com/f1/news/13...representative

Although I’m confused as this isnt a story about McLaren

Macaroon is nice. But nothing going on in front of side pods tell me they are hiding something for track day. Look at the rear suspension from the top. It's strange. Strange suspension from Mclaren scares me.

Yes, most of the teams don't reveal their full hand until the final test. Or even first race weekend. The McLaren I suspect is one car that is not in full race spec for sure.

The barge boards area in front of the side pods will be the biggest development race this year. Watch how complicated this area will get with all sorts of aero developments as the year progresses. It ain't going to look pretty.
