How to watch the launch of McLaren's 2023 MCL60 F1 car

McLaren are set to become the latest F1 team to unveil their 2023 car, the MCL60. Here's how you can watch the event live.

With the unveiling of the McLaren MCL60 Formula 1 car, it will mark the halfway point of launch season in 2023. The Woking squad are set to take the covers off the car named to celebrate 60 years since founder Bruce started his eponymous squad, in a break with the sequential numbering scheme, meaning the MCL37 must wait until 2024.

What time does the McLaren launch start?

The McLaren MCL60 launch will be at 17:00 UK time on Monday 13 February. This is 12:00 Eastern Time or for those in Australia – homeland of new driver Oscar Piastri – it is a 04:00 start on Tuesday morning for those on Australian Eastern Standard Time.

What can I expect from the launch?

There have been some big changes in the off-season for Woking over key personnel. Daniel Ricciardo lost his seat after poor performances, with McLaren swooping in to steal Piastri from under the nose of Alpine, the team who had nurtured him through the junior ranks. As RacingNews365.com exclusively revealed in September 2022, McLaren were able to nab Piastri after multiple failings on Alpine's behalf when it came to sorting his contract. Elsewhere, Team Principal Andreas Seidl has left to become Sauber Motorsport CEO ahead of Audi's entry, with Andrea Stella promoted to run the team. Former Fernando Alonso-lieutenant Stella will report to Zak Brown who remains as CEO of McLaren Racing.
