McLaren unveil striking Senna livery for Monaco GP

The McLaren Formula 1 team has revealed a distinct new livery for the Monaco Grand Prix weekend.

The new colour scheme is in honour of three-time world champion Ayrton Senna whose 30-year anniversary takes place this year.

Senna won each of his three titles at McLaren before moving to Williams in 1994. During the San Marino Grand Prix, he passed away following a high-speed accident.

McLaren has adopted a special livery at a number of races in recent years, including during previous trips to Monaco.

The Senna-related change is inspired by his famous race helmet, which prominently featured the yellow and green colours of the Brazilian flag.

Senna remains the most successful driver in the history of the Monaco Grand Prix, winning the race a record six times.

McLaren's drivers Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri will also wear race suits to compliment the livery while the trackside team will sport a Senna-inspired kit.

“The team is proud to recognise and celebrate the extraordinary life and racing legacy of Ayrton Senna through this McLaren livery,” said McLaren CEO Zak Brown. 

“Senna remains revered and respected as Formula 1’s greatest icon, and McLaren’s most decorated driver. 

“His impact on McLaren is enormous, not only through his racing record but also presence within the team, and now his legacy, so it’s an honour to race for him at his most successful circuit in his green, yellow and blue colours.”

McLaren enter the Monaco Grand Prix weekend in strong form, scoring three podiums at the last three events - including a race win in Miami.
