The McLaren MCL35 has officially broken cover – here is a closer look at the car which Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris will look to drive to glory in 2020.
There has been a theme from the teams who have so far revealed little change from their 2019 livery to 2020. But while McLaren haven’t strayed much either, they have made the MCL35 look incredibly tidy.
With 38 sponsors now working alongside McLaren, it’s no surprise that their branding features heavily on the MCL35. Dark Trace now appear on the rear wing in the place of Dell Technologies, while FXPro have now shifted to the centre of the front wing. British American Tobacco’s “a better tomorrow” now takes its place on the front wing.
Huski Chocolate have kept their spot on the rear wing, while Dell now have their branding running along the airbox.
British American Tobacco appear again down the side to create a more refined, and much more attractive design.
And if you still can’t get enough of the MCL35 (we don’t blame you), here is an in-depth tour courtesy of McLaren.

Equally as impressive is Sainz’s new lid! McLaren and their drivers really have spoiled us. The Spanish flag-inspired design marks a big change from his 2019 design as the blue makes way for that solid red and yellow. The grey trim just gives it that extra wow factor.
Very nice! 🤩

And for more information on the design and how it will evolve over the season, here’s the man himself to explain.
💪🏼 HELMET 2020!! I’ll be playing with different tones of grey throughout the season so it’s important to have your feedback! Flag design is a bit more aggressive as well! Let me know what you think? @DaveDesigns083 @SchuberthHelmet @JMD_helmets pic.twitter.com/j83Bi0W1aE
