Liveries – 15 years of McLaren Mercedes F1 partnership

Although the Mercedes engines will power the McLaren F1 cars for few years to come (the new deal says 2015 at least) their privileged partnership is coming to an end. Following the takeover of Brawn GP Mercedes will run their own team and McLaren will turn into a customer. Let’s look back at the images of Mercedes powered McLaren since 1995:

    I wouldn’t mind seeing the color scheme return to that of the late 1980′s/90′s. I think that would be a cool way to get away from the Mercedes color scheme of the last few years.

    I just don’t like the red vodafone-part. IMO it doesn’t match with the silver.

    The Marlboro livery is just cult, but since the tobacco industry kind of retried from formula 1 I don’t think that this livery will come back :-(

  3. James MartinNo Gravatar says:

    I dont think they should revert to the malboro Mclaren livery as it should be incapsulated in time with the iconic Sena/Prost era, however i do think they should now re-identify themselves as independent of Mercedes

  4. RoboScorpionNo Gravatar says:

    McLaren will definitely not revert to red and white – they were Marlboro colours. You only have to look at the change from Marlboro to West (title sponsors) to see that.
    I think they should revert to some kind of orange, though how that would sit with Vodafone red is debatable…
