McLaren reveals new livery for 2024

McLaren become the first Formula 1 team to reveal their 2024 look by showing of the livery design for the upcoming championship season.

It features more papaya, which has been a staple of the colour scheme since the 2018 season in referring to their early cars, compared to last year’s livery.

The 2024 challenger will be named the MCL38 and is due to break cover on February 14, when the team complete a shakedown run at Silverstone. It will then head to Bahrain for pre-season testing, which begins on February 21.

The team will run an unchanged line-up of Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri, with Team Principal Andrea Stella set for his second season in charge.

“We’re delighted to launch our 2024 Formula 1 livery ahead of the new season,” said McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown. “The design looks awesome, and I can’t wait to go racing and see it come to life on track next month.

“We didn’t start 2023 as we wanted but Andrea and the team did a great job following the organisational restructure coming into action, and the hard work continues as we carry that excellent momentum into the 2024 campaign.

“I’m confident the exciting pairing of Lando and Oscar will continue to create more mega memories together after such an impressive second half of last year, which saw the team finish fourth in the championship with 302 points. These are all steps forward from the year before as we continue our mission to push and compete at the front of the grid.”

Stella added: “After a busy and productive off season, we head into 2024 with our sights set on continuing our journey towards the front of the grid. Last year allowed the team to set a strong foundation for the future through continued hard work, commitment, effort and talent.

“With our new infrastructure upgrades and people in place, we must continue to elevate our standards and incorporate high performance in everything we do.

“The 2024 livery looks great and I’m looking forward to seeing our exciting driver line-up of Lando and Oscar take the MCL38 to track next month.”

The new paint job certainly looks good and compared to last year’s car, more cleaner design in terms of livery. Hopefully the new MCL38 can regularly score points and Lando Norris will finally win his first race.
