Hammerdown should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
It does look like they’ve gone for a lower rake this year. Glad to see they’ve painted the nostrils black so you can’t see them.

Hold my beer.



I think the 2018 McLaren livery was more elegant however.

Last year was the same. Went out for some hero Laps at the end of a day in light fuel and soft tyre.

We know how last season worked out for then

Well it appears they are doing better than expected but there is a feeling that the other teams are not showing their full potential.

Difficult to know whether they’re doing glory runs or not.

Possible they are as still have bugger all big sponsors on the car, except Sainz’s sponsors and however much Norris’ Dad is contributing.

i thought BAT was their title sponsor now?

at least i would image they are paying somewhere between the full rate card (given the scrutiny surrounding tobacco why would they accept anything less) and what Phillip Morris pay Ferrari.

anyways i love their write up on the Mclaren site.

https://www.mclaren.com/formula1/par...rican-tobacco/

Its Strategic Portfolio is made up of an increasing range of potentially reduced-risk products, comprising vapour and tobacco heating products, as well as oral tobacco and nicotine products such as moist snuff and snus.

nothing says a better tomorrow more than moist snuff!

They make these big announcements for what turn out to be small and/or very short-term deals.

I bet Ron doesn’t know whether to laugh or cry.

Good to see Fred wanting to do some development work on the McLaren. Shows he's a pro at the end of the day
