At an event at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, the team lifted the covers off the new McLaren MCL35 car that will be driven by Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris through the upcoming campaign.

The MCL35 retains the team's papaya and blue colour scheme from the previous season. There is a great block of blue along the side pods of the car, as well as on the airbox.

McLaren enjoyed its best season for eight years in 2019 as it finished fourth in the constructors' championship, heading the midfield teams.

Sainz managed to take sixth place in the drivers' standings, only trailing the five race winners in the championship, and scored McLaren's first podium since 2014 at the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Teammate Norris enjoyed an impressive debut season, picking up 49 points with a best finish of sixth in Austria.

 

McLaren is the third team to publicly unveil its car after Ferrari and Red Bull both held events earlier this week.

Haas has released renders of its 2020 car ahead of a full launch at the start of testing, while Renault offered only teasers of its new model at a season preview event on Wednesday.

The McLaren MCL35 car will make its on-track debut at the start of pre-season testing in Barcelona on February 19.

The hidden Ferrari struggle that Sainz’s recent charge put to rest

Despite appearing to adjust to life as a Ferrari driver with relative ease, it was far from straightforward under the surface for Carlos Sainz. But, having made breakthroughs in rather different routes at the Russian and Turkish races, he’s now targeting even greater feats for the rest of the Formula 1 season

The final throes of Brazil's fleetingly successful F1 team

Emerson Fittipaldi is better remembered for his Formula 1 world championships and Indianapolis 500 successes than for the spell running his eponymous F1 team. Despite a hugely talented roll call of staff, it was a period of internal strife, limited funding and few results - as remembered by Tim Wright.

Why McLaren's expanding agenda will benefit its F1 resurgence

In the 1960s and 1970s, McLaren juggled works entries in F1, sportscars and the Indy 500 while building cars for F3 and F2. Now it’s returning to its roots, expanding into IndyCars and Extreme E while continuing its F1 renaissance. There’s talk of Formula E and WEC entries too. But is this all too much, too soon? Stuart Codling talks to the man in charge.

Yuki Tsunoda arrived in grand prix racing amid a whirlwind of hype, which only increased after his first race impressed the biggest wigs in Formula 1. His road since has been rocky and crash-filled, and OLEG KARPOV asks why Red Bull maintains faith in a driver who admits he isn’t really that big a fan of F1?

How F1’s pole winner approach undermines drivers

OPINION: Valtteri Bottas is credited with pole position for the 2021 Turkish Grand Prix, despite being beaten in qualifying. This is another example of Formula 1 and the FIA scoring an own goal by forgetting what makes motorsport magic, with the Istanbul race winner also a victim of this in the championship’s recent history
