Mclaren prezinta MCL34, monopostul pentru sezonul 2019.

MCL34 monopostul celor de la Mclaren a fost prezentat la sfarsitul acestei saptamani. Echipa britanica mizeaza pe o echipa noua de piloti Carlos Sainz si Lando Norris, la fel pentru conducerea staff-ului tehnic, anume James Key fostul director tehnic de la Toro Rosso. Tot la nivel managerial, in postura executiva este numit Andreas Seidl, sef in programul de anduranta de la Porsche. Fernando Alonso se pare ca va fi pilot de rezerva in cadrul echipei (nu este inca confirmat oficial).

Echipa este pregatita pentru testele de la Barcelona, Carlos Sainz este programat pentru ziua 1 si 3, iar colegul lui Lando Norris pentru zilele 2 si 4. Pe langa noutatile din staff, monopostul este o noutate si din punct de vedere coloristic, albastrul cu nuante de galben (vopseaua este furnizata de Akzo Nobel – gama Sikkens) dominand intreaga structura. De asemenea motorizarea pentru acest sezon este oferita de Renault prin unitatea Renault E-Tech 19.

“MCL34 este rezultatul unui volum imens de munca si dedicare din partea echipei noastre. Suntem motivati si uniti in ambitia noastra de aduce echipa Mclaren la performanta, noul monopost fiind doar inceputul acestui drum”

“Avem o echipa noua de piloti, care impreuna reprezinta o noua generatie a talentelor din Formula 1, fac parte integranta din echipa si contribuie la efortul nostru colectiv de a duce Mclaren catre performanta”
