McLaren confirms change to "graphite grey" livery

McLaren has now formally confirmed that the livery of its MP4-30 will change for this weekend's Spanish Grand Prix from chrome to "graphite grey".

As revealed by Motorsport.com on Saturday, the chrome-and-silver look that the car started the season with has now been replaced, after it caused problems in sunlight.

A McLaren spokesman told Motorsport.com: “We have revised our car’s livery, improving its visual impact, optimising it for not only bright sunshine but also for the floodlights increasingly used in twilight and night races.

"The result is a dynamic, predatory, graphite grey colouration, complemented by McLaren-dayglo ‘speedmarks’ and keylines, reducing the reflection issues caused by our latest chrome-silver treatment.”
