McLaren gets futuristic makeover for Formula 1’s return to Asia

New-look livery for the McLaren F1 team ahead of 2022 Singapore GP and 2022 Japanese GP

-

Ahead of the Formula 1’s return to Asia, McLaren have revealed that their cars and drivers will be getting a special makeover for the double-header. 

New livery and driver overalls will give McLaren a futuristic look for the races in Singapore and Japan this year. 

McLaren, in conjunction with sponsor OKX unveiled the striking new designs in a press release on Tuesday. With a combination of black, orange and pink, the inspiration comes from multiple sources. 

The new design is part of McLaren Racing and OKX’s ‘Future Mode’ campaign, while it is also intended to be a nod to the role Asia has played in developing new technologies and to the metropolises of the host countries.

“The special livery enhances McLaren’s Fluro Papaya colourway with neon pink embellishments and dynamic, cyberpunk-inspired engine illustrations,” McLaren said in a press release. 

“The effervescent design represents the emergence of new technologies from the region, with a look to the future inspired by the cityscapes of Singapore and Japan, where Formula 1 returns for the first time since 2019.

“For the entire 2022 Singapore Grand Prix (30 September–2 October) and 2022 Japanese Grand Prix (7 October–9 October) race weekends, the Future Mode livery will be carried on both MCL36 F1 cars, and reflected on the race suits of McLaren F1 drivers Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo.”

The team will also be producing ‘Future Mode’ merchandise using these designs, while gaming fans will also be able to use the special edition livery and driver suits on the F1 22 game.
