McLaren announced that their 2017 car will be launched on the 24th of February, but no-one noticed because the tweet featured lots of orange. Orange! And McLaren! Together!

The idea of a McLaren livery that isn’t entirely grey naturally sent F1 fans into a frenzy. After all, Ron Dennis is out and Zak Brown is in. Things are different at McLaren. It could happen right? Right?!

Here’s how people on Twitter reacted to the news that something that may or may not happen.

Seems like F1 fans definitely want an orange McLaren. And we do! An orange McLaren! It’s going to happen. It has to happen!

Aaaannnnd back to reality. These ‘orange McLaren’ rumours happen every year, and every year we’re disappointed as it ends up being just a slightly different shade of grey with rocket red flashes.

But this year…the tweet. There’s orange in the official tweet. That has to mean something. Doesn’t it?
