A gust of wind blows apart McLaren's cover!


In the run-up to tomorrow's formal presentation of its 2018 car, McLaren has gone out of its way to tease the new livery of its MCL33, but a gust of wind has blown the team's cover.

A picture posted on Twitter by tech analyst @SomersF1 shows what looks like the car being unloaded at the Pamplona airport, only for the winds of change to take hold, revealing what looks like a proper McLaren orange 'Papaya' liveried racing car which will no doubt have the team's fans overjoyed.

Expectations are high at Woking on the eve of a season which McLaren hopes will see a turn-around of its fortunes, thanks in part to its new partnership with engine supplier Renault.

We're believers.
