McLaren executive director Zak Brown says that 2018 will be the year McLaren gets back to where it belongs. The Woking-based squad is expected to have a much more successful year in 2018, after ridding itself of the troublesome Honda power unit.
Instead, it will be running with Renault’s unit, which too had its troubles in 2017. However, with Red Bull winning three Grands Prix last season powered by Renault, McLaren is aiming to make a return to the front of the field this season.
McLaren unveiled an orange inspired livery in 2017, something which former CEO Ron Dennis had always been against.
