McLaren unveiled its finalised livery featuring the iconic papaya colour that is synonymous with the team's history, adorning the angular lines of the futuristic Gen3 machine they will compete with next season.

The famed race team and automaker confirmed their entry into the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship back in May and will partner with NEOM, a sustainable region in northwest Saudi Arabia being built from the ground up, from the 2022/23 season.

“McLaren Racing always seeks to compete against the best and on the leading edge of technology, providing our fans, partners and people with new ways to be excited, entertained and inspired,” said Zak Brown, McLaren Racing CEO. “Formula E, like all our racing series, fulfils all those criteria.

“As with all forms of the sport we participate in, Formula E has racing at the centre but will be strategically, commercially and technically additive to McLaren Racing overall. 

“I firmly believe that Formula E will give McLaren Racing a competitive advantage through greater understanding of EV racing, while providing a point of difference to our fans, partners and people, and continuing to drive us along our sustainability pathway.”

Yesterday, the team announced its completed driver line-up with Brit Jake Hughes confirmed alongside multiple DTM champion and returning Formula E racer Rene Rast.
