McLaren's 2022 Formula 1 car, the MCL36, has broken cover as the team revealed their new-look machine for the upcoming season.

Holding a spectacular launch event at their headquarters at Woking in the United Kingdom, McLaren launched their 2022 season across a range of motorsport series - their F1 programme being the headline of the event alongside their IndyCar, Extreme E and eSports campaign launches.

Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo, McLaren's 2022 Formula 1 drivers, were on hand to reveal the brand-new MCL36, the first car designed by F1's second-oldest team to comply with F1's revolutionary new regulations.

Designed by Technical Director James Key and produced by a team led by Operations Director Piers Thynne, the MCL36 will hit the track for the first time at the pre-season test in Barcelona on 23 February.

The car reveal is the real deal

Like Aston Martin's launch on Thursday, the car McLaren revealed on Friday is the actual 2022 race car - the team choosing not to simply hold a livery launch using a model car.

However, the livery of the MCL36 is striking in its refresh for 2022.

While still retaining a papaya base, the colour has been tweaked to run a brighter shade of the colour, with a bolder blue colour for the accents. It's similar to the colour scheme used for the Gulf livery used at last year's Monaco Grand Prix.
