The McLaren team has unveiled the livery for the upcoming Monaco and Spanish Grands Prix.
The color scheme of the MCL60 refers to the “Triple Crown” of the team from Woking – only McLaren can boast that its cars and its drivers have won three of the most prestigious races in the world – the Monaco Grand Prix, the Indy 500 and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. .
The rear of the MCL60 is decorated in the colors of the McLaren M16C/D driven by Johnny Rutherford in Indianapolis in May 1974. The white colors of the car are a reference to the McLaren MP4 / 2 Alain Prost, in which the French racer won in Monaco.
The front end is painted to commemorate the 1995 Le Mans win by Yannick Dalmas, Mizanori Sekiya and JJ Lehto, winning the legendary overall marathon in a McLaren F1 GTR sports car.
Zach Brown, CEO of McLaren Racing: “The team has achieved the greatest success in motorsport by winning the Triple Crown. We are proud to celebrate the rich history of McLaren Racing with a special livery for the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix.
In celebration of the company’s 60th anniversary and the legacy of Bruce McLaren, a unique livery pays homage to three Triple Crown victories.
Lando Norris: “It is a privilege for me to participate in the events dedicated to the 60th anniversary. In the colors of the car for the Monaco Grand Prix, we have combined three iconic McLaren liveries.
The team has an impressive record in Monte Carlo and it was a personal honor for me to be on the podium in 2021. We will give it our all in racing behind the wheel of a great looking car to celebrate the outstanding legacy of Bruce McLaren and the team.”
Oscar Piastri: “The Triple Crown paint on the car looks incredible. I can’t think of a better way to have my first Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix as a McLaren driver.
Bruce McLaren won at Monaco in 1962 and the team has a long history of success at the circuit. It is with great pride that I will go to the start in a car painted in the same colors as the three race cars that have won the Triple Crown.
