"I know just how important this vehicle is to the team, and I just hope that it delivers in the way we all want it to". There is also a splash of blue at the rear and on the front wing.

"With last year's vehicle, we had to commit to certain decisions about architecture based on what we knew at the time", explained Tim Goss, McLaren's Chief Technical Officer - Chassis. "They look incredible, and really underline the fearless spirit with which we attack the new season".

"Now in winter testing we need to make sure that we optimize this package but so far I'm very happy and very optimistic, I think the team did an wonderful job in the last couple of months", added the former Renault and Ferrari driver.

The team has failed to finish on the podium since the 2014 Australian Grand Prix, with their best results in their time with Honda a trio of fifth places for Fernando Alonso.

"And, for 2018, it's not merely the color of the auto that marks the change: there's a determination and commitment that exists within everyone who works at McLaren, and we're fighting stronger than ever to return to the front".

McLaren has switched to Renault power following the end of its dismal partnership with Honda, which was cut short a year ago. We never took the easy route or looked to shortcut a process or a solution; and the result is a auto that is neat and well-resolved. After a very intense time in the factory for a few months, everyone working very hard, very proud of the team, and finally today arrives.

"We never took the easy route or looked to shortcut a process or a solution; and the result is a vehicle that is neat and well-resolved".

"We have strong leadership, hugely experienced and talented people, new partners, and motivated, exciting racers behind the wheel".

"The McLaren team was created by a courageous pioneer, and has had bravery at its core ever since", he said. I think the team is stronger now than three years ago.

Alonso's team mate, Stoffel Vandoorne is equally impatient to hit the track, the Belgian hoping the team will enjoy a relatively trouble-free two weeks of testing in Barcelona to facilitate the timey development of the MCL33.
