F1 Hype: McLaren Honda Reveals New MP4-30 Race Car (Video)

Early in the A.M. (4am for me to be exact) right after Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso went to the future (see previous post), McLaren Honda finally revealed their 2015 chassis dubbed MP4-30.  This was significant for two reasons.  The first is that this officially launches the rebirth of one of F1’s storied partnerships in McLaren and Honda.  It also marks one of the first times that a car reveal was done exclusively over social media.  That’s right, there was no press conference gala at the McLaren HQ.  The reveal was done by live posting by McLaren via their social media channels (twitter, facebook, instagram), and their website.  I think it was a pretty neat concept to do it this way but I am not so sure other teams will follow suit.

Anyhow you can finally see the new McLaren Honda in all its glory by clicking on any of the thumbnails or watching the intro video below.  What do you think of it?  I was kind of hoping they would go back to a white and red color scheme like the MP46.  I think the colors they chose look great but since they aren’t associated with Mercedes anymore, why hang on to the silver?  Oh well, either way it still looks pretty fresh.  Let us know what your thoughts are in the comments or tweet us at @MotorworldHype
