    Stoffel Vandoorne gave a sneek peak on Instagram of his car for the 2017 season. Also, looks like Mobil 1 is gone.

    It's just his chosen number on the 2016 livery. McLaren posted several images of it on their social media accounts.

      Please for the love of God do not let those numbers come back. In fact, don't let any part of that scheme come back. Kill it with fire and let it die a slow, painful death.

        The upward perspective of the number never made any sense to me.

          Mobil was announced gone a while ago, they are headed to Red Bull. McLaren will use BP oils and fuels, under the Castrol branding.

            I didn't realize there was that much flake in the McLaren paint, it looks sharp. Now if only the rest of the scheme looked as sharp, the numbers looked as sharp, and if they used their signature Kiwi Orange.

              They kinda hinted at it with a recent tweet. Hopefully they finally switch to it

                I do like the metal flake, not sure if that's new for 2017, or maybe just a test. But the car is last years; there's no way McLaren would allow a leaked pic of the new car from their Twitter account.

                  They've used that exact metallic grey color since the mid-season livery change in 2015.

                      They've literally hinted at it since the 90s. Never ends up happening.

                          I must be the only one that actually liked their numbers last year

                            Not that we hear a lot about the design names any more, but it will be strange that the new McLaren won't be a MP4.
