McLaren reveals 2023 F1 car and livery
Here’s a closer look at the McLaren 2023 F1car and livery MCL60, including the design elements it has borrowed from the leading team in F1.
On Monday night, McLaren unveiled the MCL60 to the public for the first time. The British team aspires to compete with top teams such as Ferrari, Red Bull Racing, and Mercedes in the upcoming season with this new car.
Two years ago, McLaren was still battling for third place in the Constructors’ Championship, but the following season saw the team take a step back. Due to a lackluster start and a stronger performance by Ferrari, McLaren fell to fifth place in the standings, trailing behind Alpine.
Late last year, McLaren decided to part ways with Daniel Ricciardo and bring in Oscar Piastri as his replacement. Furthermore, Andreas Seidl departed for a new opportunity at Sauber, while Andrea Stella was promoted to the position of team boss. These changes signal a significant shake-up for the team.
With aspirations of competing for the World Championship within a few seasons, McLaren aims to make significant improvements in 2023. The MCL60 is intended to provide Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri with the chance to fight for podium finishes. However, the upcoming test days in Bahrain this month will provide a better indication of how McLaren stacks up against the competition.
McLaren F1 Infrastructure Upgrades
McLaren is in the final stages of several major infrastructure projects, including the construction of a new wind tunnel.
Although it will not have a significant effect on this year’s MCL60 race car, the new wind tunnel is expected to bring about improvements in the team’s methodologies and be a step change for McLaren.
Additionally, the team is also investing in a new simulator, a new manufacturing facility, and other high-level upgrades that are expected to be completed mid-year.
These investments are aimed at helping McLaren reach its goal of becoming a top four team in the medium term and potentially even compete for more in the future.
As Stella stated, “We are not naive, but we know that pretty much every team will be staying the same. We have good developments and large investments that should come to fruition mid-year, which should give us an extra boost.”
