The Woking team will be powered by Mercedes engines from this season onwards, which is why the new car is called the MCL35M. Its design was commissioned by technical director James Key, and it is basically an evolution of last year’s race car, taking into account the adjustments that were necessary to replace Renault’s powertrain with Mercedes ’. McLarn has faced a number of logistical problems due to the new coronavirus pandemic in recent months, as the team is based on the Island and uses a Toyota wind tunnel in Cologne, Germany. This year’s McLarn race car doesn’t differ much visually from its predecessor. The biggest change happened under the hood, where Renault’s engine replaced the Mercedes engine. Lando Norris, who has been a member of McLaren for three years now, was the first to introduce himself.
