A return to the orange livery for McLaren?


McLaren’s 2017 launch is one of the most hotly anticipated as the rumour mill is predicting a return of the iconic orange livery.

This year’s campaign heralds the beginning of a new era for McLaren-Honda as Ron Dennis has left the team with Zak Brown stepping in as the new chief.

Already Brown has spoken of an “exciting” 2017 livery.

Speaking at the recent Autosport International Show, he said: “We’ve shown it to the guys and girls at McLaren and we’re very excited for our future.

“We’ve just signed off on the car livery and I think the fans will be excited to find out what the car looks like both technically and visually.”

And with McLaren splashing orange colouring across their social media platforms, there is speculation that the historic orange paintwork will make a return this season.

While McLaren run the orange colours from 1968 and 1971 with sporadic showings in pre-season testing in 1997, 1998 and 2006.

The team will unveil their 2017 challenger at their Woking headquarters on February 24.
