McLaren to launch season car in mid-February

McLaren will launch their next Formula 1 challenger in mid-February having hidden the news in an image on social media.

McLaren announced the news on Twitter having hidden the date on a sticky note in one of their images.

Oscar Piastri had this to say about his new teammate Lando Norris:

“I’m looking forward to being able to show what I have, but also there’s undoubtedly going to be things to learn along the way, and I think Lando’s a very strong team mate to be able to learn from. I think it’ll be a good working relationship.

“We’re both quite similar in age, we’ve got a few friends in common, like I said, so I’m confident that we’ll be able to work well together and hopefully bring the whole team more towards the front of the grid – that’s the aim.”

Formula 1 season will kickoff in Bahrain on March 5 and concluding in Abu Dhabi on November 26, the season will feature a planned, record-breaking 24 races, with Qatar set to return and Las Vegas arriving as the penultimate round for a Saturday night race.
