This Monday the season 2021 of the Formula 1. After months of waiting, and with doubts about the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), the team Mclaren unveiled its car for this year. With the new engine, new driver and new illusions, the British team wants to show that its progression is continuing by leaps and bounds.
The presentation of the car was given virtually. Unlike other years, in which fans could be present while the drivers raised the tarp that covered the car, this time it was done virtually. So much Lando norris What Daniel Ricciardo were present at the press ‘conference’ in which the MCL35M.
The differences were not marked. With some new sponsors, McLaren unveiled the ‘new’ colors that are reflected on the car. Orange is the predominant shade, just like in 2020. A few shades of blue and black that were added, formed a car very similar to last season, which achieved third place in the constructors’ championship.
The aerodynamic changes of the Woking team car are not too great. Some modifications to the flat bottom (chassis), although they are not very significant. The front wing has a slight change, as it was given a more rounded shape at the end of the nose. Ads will remain the same, and no more are planned to be added.
The biggest change to McLaren’s 2021 car is inside. The new Mercedes engine will replace the power unit that Renault provided. The British team wants to return to its glory days together with the German brand and will seek to get closer and closer to the peloton in front, repeating the third place of the last year, together with Norris and Carlos Sainz.
