F1 2018 McLaren MCL33 is real



“The McLaren team was created by a brave pioneer, and has had bravery at its core ever since. Whether it’s been with brave drivers, brave leaders or brave fortune, this team has always fought back.

“And we definitely view 2018 as the year when McLaren will move closer to the front, fighting teams and drivers as we improve our fortunes.

“We have an excellent team, a new engine partner in Renault and a host of fantastic new partnerships: Airgain, CNBC, Dell Technologies, Kimoa and Petrobras have all been welcomed to the McLaren family.

“Our return to a papaya orange livery for this year wasn’t simply an emotional decision; it demonstrates that we are listening to our fans, building deeper engagement with them and the Formula 1 community as a whole.

“We want McLaren to earn respect on and off the track, and this felt like a good starting point. We want to show everyone what makes this team special, whether that’s our fans or our partners – there’s room for more on our journey.”

– Zak Brown, Executive Director, McLaren Technology Group


Be Brave – Unveiling the McLaren MCL33 –


Watch as we reveal our 2018 challenger, the striking McLaren MCL33. Returning to our iconic papaya orange and blue, the MCL33 will contest the 2018 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, and marks the first time in McLaren’s 52-year history that it has run a car powered by Renault engines.

Sur la nouvelle McLaren, outre l’apparition du halo et la disparition de l’aileron de requin, le changement le plus visible est le retour à une livrée teinte orange papaya, couleur de fond historique de l’écurie McLaren en sport automobile, et au bleu foncé, couleur d’accentuation historique de l’écurie McLaren en sport automobile.

La MCL33 disputera le Championnat du Monde de Formule 1 de la FIA 2018, et marque la première fois dans l’histoire de McLaren en 52 ans d’histoire que la voiture sera propulsée par des moteurs Renault.

La monoplace fera la course dans une nouvelle livrée qui s’inspire directement de la couleur orange papaye et bleue emblématique de l’écurie dont McLaren s’est inspiré pour la première fois en Formule 1 il y a 50 ans.

The car will race in a stunning new livery that draws its inspiration directly from the team’s iconic papaya orange and blue colour scheme that McLaren first raced in Formula 1 50 years ago.

La livrée orange caractéristique de McLaren a remporté un franc succès dans la Formule 1, l’Indy 500 et la série CanAm. Pour 2018, le MCL33 fait revivre de façon spectaculaire et rafraîchissante les couleurs originales de McLaren – orange papaye et bleu foncé.



Inspiré par les nombreux discours de nos fans, le retour à l’orange papaya est aussi porté par McLaren qui cherche à façonner son avenir. L’unique livrée orange papaye est une déclaration ouverte du prochain chapitre de l’équipe, et symbolique de McLaren à sa forme la plus simple et la plus pure : celle des ‘racers’.

Il reflète les qualités essentielles qui sont restées constantes pour McLaren tout au long de son histoire et qui sont intrinsèques à son avenir. En particulier, il évoque la bravoure de l’équipe, déroulée dans le cadre de la campagne #BeBeBrave qui a précédé le lancement et qui restera une caractéristique de la saison 2018.

McLaren a utilisé ce orange papaya pour la première fois en 1968, une autre décision du fondateur Bruce McLaren qui a rompu les conventions. À une époque où de nombreuses nations couraient sous les couleurs nationales traditionnelles, comme ‘British Racing Green’, ‘French Racing Blue’, ‘Italia Rosso Corsa’, Bruce a choisi l’Orange Papaya pour faire ressortir son équipe éponyme sur le circuit.

La couleur primaire accrocheuse de la MCL33, Papaya Spark, et les couleurs secondaires Burton Blue et Cerulean Blue, ont été développées en collaboration avec AkzoNobel, partenaire de McLaren. Les systèmes de revêtement innovants fournis par la société ont permis à l’équipe de réduire de façon significative le poids total de la peinture et de réduire de plus de 50% le temps de traitement de la peinture.

“The MCL33 represents a fresh chapter for McLaren – one that clearly embraces our evocative history while also serving to guide our future. We may have faced a tricky last few years, but this team has demonstrated time and time again that it emerges stronger from each and every challenge.

“And, for 2018, it’s not merely the colour of the car that marks the change: there’s a determination and commitment that exists within everyone who works at McLaren, and we’re fighting stronger than ever to return to the front.

“I also want to acknowledge the loyal support of our long-standing partners including Chandon, NTT Communications, Hilton, Richard Mille, Norton Rose Fulbright, SAP and all our official partners and suppliers.

“We have strong leadership, hugely experienced and talented people, new partners, and motivated, exciting racers behind the wheel.

“We are ready to race.”

– Shaikh Mohammed bin Essa Al Khalifa, Executive Chairman and Executive Committee Principal, McLaren Group



“It’s imperative that McLaren looks to re-establish itself on the track this year.

“Off-track, we have been working as strongly as ever: this year’s car is the result of a fantastic amount of teamwork and effort, of which we can be hugely proud. As ever, this formidable team keeps pushing itself forward, and I applaud everyone at McLaren for their relentless commitment to the mission.

“It’s fantastic to be able to return McLaren’s grand prix cars to the classic papaya orange livery they once sported in the 1960s. They look incredible, and really underline the fearless spirit with which we attack the new season.

“As a team, we have always been at our best when we are at our bravest, and I think this is another example of that indomitable spirit.”

– Mansour Ojjeh, Executive Committee Member, McLaren Group


“I think the whole team feels proud of this car.

“The design, engineering and aerodynamic departments have done an incredible job delivering a new car with a new power unit in an extremely short timeframe. We never took the easy route or looked to shortcut a process or a solution; and the result is a car that is neat and well-resolved.

“That said, we are under no illusions that it will be difficult to splinter the hegemony at the front; and that the midfield will be full of well-funded, experienced outfits with plenty to prove. We are humble about the challenge ahead, but feel we’ve prepared well, have a solid package that we can build upon and exploit as the season progresses, and have two excellent drivers who will make the difference in races.

“At McLaren, we are all racers – pure and simple. We’re going to come out pushing, and we’re going to be racing as hard as ever.”

– Eric Boullier, McLaren Racing Director

Une grande partie du travail sur le MCL33 a porté sur l’optimisation de l’intégration du nouveau moteur Renault Sport R.E.18 composé du bloc 1.6L V6 Internal Combustion Engine (ICE), du Motor Generator Unit – Kinetic (MGU-K), Motor Generator Unit – Heat (MGU-H) de 120 kW, Energy Store (ES), du Turbocharger et du boitier Control Electronics.



“With last year’s car, we had to commit to certain decisions about architecture based on what we knew at the time,”“With a year of track learning behind us, we’ve used that understanding to adjust some architectural decisions. That means we’ve been able to revise all the sorts of things you bake into the chassis at the start of the year.”

“We’re definitely continuing along the same trajectory,” continues Goss.

“For launch, the car will look evolutionary, and we will continue enhancing the MCL33 through testing and the race season. »

In terms of development, the design team has focused on refining the package; making it neater, simpler and more elegant.

“That’s always been an area of focus for us,” says Goss. “But, this year, we went beyond to get a neat and tidy packaging solution. And that just gives the aerodynamicists more scope to play with the bodywork.”

– Tim Goss, McLaren’s Chief Technical Officer

Sous de la carrosserie se trouve un nouveau groupe motopropulseur fourni par Renault avec une philosophie différente de celle de son prédécesseur proposé par Honda.

Le groupe motopropulseur Honda suit la philosophie ‘split-turbo’ de Mercedes, tandis que Renault a un turbo entièrement monté à l’arrière du moteur V6. Ainsi, le châssis conçu pour la Honda avait besoin d’espace à l’arrière du réservoir de carburant pour loger le compresseur du turbo et sa airbox alors que l’avant du moteur de la Renault est plus épuré tout en abritant une partie du même matériel derrière le moteur.


McLaren MCL33 First Fire Up!


Our brand new MCL33 lives! Watch the team’s reaction as the MCL33’s engine is fired up for the first time.


“That change has been a big deal,” says Goss. “Even though the regulations state that the front and rear engine mounts need to be the same for every manufacturer, the layout of the engine, its architecture, is very different from before.

“There are two families of engine out there; the Mercedes and Honda concept, with the compressor at the front of the engine, turbine at the back, MGU-H sat in the vee; and the Ferrari and Renault approach, where the turbo-charger is at the back of the engine, and the MGU-H sits forwards into the vee.

“Each of those approaches has its pros and cons, but I’m actually quite a big fan of the Renault approach. Making the switch had a big impact on the installation of the engine. The advantage of the Renault layout means that we can push the engine forwards, but then you have the compressor at the back of the engine, so you’ve got to get the outlet pipes forward without impacting the packaging.

“We had to redesign the back of the chassis, the gearbox bell-housing area, the rear suspension, and the cooling layout. That was two weeks of intense effort to get right. But it was something we were somewhat prepared for, because we knew it might happen, and it’s amazing what people can do in such a short space of time when the chips are down and you’ve got a really clear mission.

“So now we’ve got a really tidy packaging solution; the gearbox and rear suspension designers did an unbelievable job to redesign everything.”

“That’s because we’ve got a very tight-knit engineering group. There’s a very clear level of communication between us, so we could make quick and bold decisions, then just get on with it.”

– Tim Goss, McLaren’s Chief Technical Officer
