McLaren took the covers off its 2019 Formula 1 car on Thursday, and we took the opportunity to get the most in-depth look yet at one of this year's new machines.

The team finished sixth in the constructors’ championship in 2018, and will be bidding to improve on a disappointing first campaign with Renault engines in which its MCL33 failed to live up to expectations.

First impressions of McLaren's challenger suggest some of the previous car's hallmarks have been carried over, but the MCL34’s “neat and tidy design” also features plenty of parts that are new for 2019.

Technical editor Jake Boxall-Legge is your guide for a full look at the car, describing in detail how each key element works, and what the team has tried to achieve with its latest design.
