McLaren MP4-29

THE FIRST REAL REVEAL OF THE 2014 SEASON McLAREN’S MP4-29—

McLaren became the first Formula 1 team to fully unveil a 2014 car as it launched the MP4-29 online on Friday.

While Force India and Williams had already given hints of their new designs with computer-generated images, McLaren’s event marked the first proper look a 2014 F1 design.

It featured the anticipated take on the controversial nose design that teams have leaned to under the new regulations, with a narrow protruding section to meet the revised crash test rules without lowering the entire front end as the rulemakers originally envisaged.

The car was unveiled in a plain silver livery with basic MP4-29 branding.
