McLaren unveil striking Monaco GP livery in Triple Crown celebration

McLaren's IndyCar team have also paid tribute to their Triple Crown for the Indy 500


McLaren will sport a special one-off livery at the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix to celebrate their Triple Crown achievements.

In the company’s 60th year, the British manufacturer are celebrating their heritage across their different teams and the F1 squad are the latest to pay homage.

In a striking one-off, Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri’s MCL60 will sport a black, white and orange ensemble, marking the team’s victories in the Le Mans 24 Hours (JJ Lehto, Yannick Dalmas and Masanori Sekiya, 1995), Indy 500 (Johnny Rutherford, 1974) and Monaco GP (Alain Prost, 1984).

McLaren’s IndyCar team have already done their own tribute to the Triple Crown with Pato O’Ward, Felix Rosenqvist and Alexander Rossi all driving one version of the three liveries for the Indy 500.

It isn’t the first time McLaren has run a special livery at Monaco as they brought back the classic light blue and orange of Gulf in 2021 when Norris went on to score a podium.

McLaren heritage

“Having achieved the greatest accomplishment in motorsport by completing the Triple Crown, we are proud to celebrate the rich history of McLaren Racing with a special livery at the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix,” Zak Brown said.

“In line with our 60th anniversary celebrations and honouring the legacy of Bruce McLaren, the unique livery pays homage to the three victories which form the Triple Crown accolade.”

Norris will be hoping for a similar result to the 2021 Gulf special while Piastri will compete in his first Monaco GP.

“It’s a privilege to be involved in McLaren Racing’s 60th anniversary celebrations and to combine three iconic race-winning McLaren liveries into one for the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix is going to be a special moment for the whole team,” Norris added.

McLaren have an impressive record in Monte Carlo and on a personal level to have experienced a podium at the 2021 race was a huge honour. We’ll be racing hard in a great-looking car to celebrate Bruce McLaren and the team’s amazing legacy.”
