The McLaren Formula 1 team has given its strongest indication yet that it will return to a more prominently-orange livery in 2018 with a teaser video released on Monday.
In the video, a fictional night security guard enters the factory to investigate a disturbance, and finds many of McLaren’s most famous papaya-hued cars – including the F1 M7A, M16 IndyCar and Can-Am M8D congregated on the MTC’s boulevard area.
They connect to a blurry image of what appears to be the new MCL33, the engine cover of which seems predominantly orange, and the car is clearly fitted with the mandatory-for-2018 Halo. The new McLaren will be officially launched this Friday.

The accompanying tweet reads: “Night shift at McLaren will never be the same again. #MCL33 is coming. 23.02.18. #BeBrave”
