I'm reserving judgement on quite how big a ticket it will be.

A couple of logos on the wing mirror and engine cover doesn't sound like a major boost (IMO).

Spot the logo:

i am looking forward to seeing those logos feature on new Mclaren kit though!

curious of the extent they will be technical partners or not given that Mclaren are going back to Merc next year.

I wonder how much of the Gulf livery we’ll see if at all. Depends how much money they are pouring in

Next season will be all different, but with the switch to Mercedes there are a few questions to be answered. Who knows how this partnership will work?

If you check back a few posts, you'll see it's already been confirmed as logos on the engine covers and wing mirrors. So in answer to the question of how much of the Gulf livery we'll see - the answer is nil.

'Gulf branding will also appear on the engine covers and wing mirrors of the McLaren MCL35 race cars.'

They also tell you how the partnership will work in the article. It's a (very minor) amount of branding on the F1 cars, and is all focussed on the road-car division:
'“Every supercar will have Gulf fuel and lubricants when it leaves the McLaren Production Centre and I know our customers will be thrilled to be able to work with our in-house bespoke team on the option of being one of the few to be able to personalise their McLaren supercar in the iconic Gulf livery.”

Sometimes it really helps to read what has been published already - a lot of the wondering can be avoided in advance.

In summary - it's a partnership that makes Gulf lubricants and fuels the 'preferred option' in the road cars, and a couple of logos slapped onto a bit of spare space for the F1 team.

There's no technical partnership with the F1 operation announced as part of the deal.

F1 is the marketing arm, Automotive is the technical arm.

The livery in that photo is orange and blue enough. When McLaren raced in Can Am, the Gulf logo was noticeable but not that prominent.

Back in those days a petrol company decal usually only meant you were getting free petrol for the race car.

True, but the blue on this McLaren F1 GTR certainly isn't C9DFEC, it's more like 2A52BE.

Agreed. And as an attempt at a Gulf livery, it just looks wrong (IMO).

There is that, though in the '70s both the works Can Am and IndyCar teams had Gulf-McLaren on the nose of the car, so maybe they got a bit more than free gas.

Tanker62M should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Still, I hope that influx of funding is going to allow McLaren to remain in the business in these difficult times, that was one of my favourite teams back in the early 90s when I started being interested in F1 racing.
