So here it is, the McLaren MP4-31. Once again McLaren haven’t exactly wowed us with the livery but at least it’s not as bad as the livery they launched this time last year for the MP4-30.

The car does though feature a couple more sponsor logos in Chandon and Richard Mille but still has a depressingly large empty space on the side pod, as the team still seek a title sponsor since Vodafone left at the end of 2013.

So not much has changed on the livery side but McLaren will of course be more concerned about the pace of their new challenger and hoping Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button score as many points as they had grid drops last season.

Only time will tell.
