McLaren Mercedes Unveil MP4-25

Wow! McLaren Mercedes has finally unveiled their entire package for the 2010 season of Formula One, showing the MP4-25 in all of its glory during a media event earlier today. Following Ferrari's launch yesterday, the Woking-based team gave the media and fans the chance to admire their 2010 challenger, with which the Brits hope to achieve another world title in the series.

As expected, the car's livery did not suffer a dramatic change in terms of livery, as it features the same silver-like paint scheme, along with the Vodafone-logo in red. The big news comes when seeing the new aerodynamic package prepared by McLaren for the 2010 season, as it features a shark-fin engine cover that goes all the way to the rear wing, something that was not used by the team on their predecessor MP4-24 model.

It was Alexander Graham Bell who said preparation is key to success and we have prepared for this season more comprehensively than ever before. As team principal I am honoured to represent this great team, but I am one small part of a group of dedicated and fantastic people,” said team principal Martin Whitmarsh.

A great team and a competitive car can only succeed with the best drivers. Neither of our drivers need much of an introduction because between them they have won the past two world championships. We are thrilled this year to have Lewis and Jenson represent the team on track. Both drivers are winners and they want to win this year,” added the Brit.

Firstly we as a technical team faced a great challenge when you have not one but two world champions in the car. We felt some pressure to provide the right equipment to get the job done - we took that seriously. It is a very sophisticated car but very elegant. That comes from unprecedented collaboration between aero team and mechanical design team,” explained engineering director Paddy Lowe the new changes on the MP4-25.
