    I read that this year Mclaren is going to be launched on 25 of January.
    However it's not official but it is believed that they(Mclaren) told their rivals about the date in order to evade any clash in dates when teams will reveal their 2014 cars.

    Also, that it might be with an orange livery plus title sponsor Vodafone departed, they still haven't announced any replacement.

    Orange? So that would mean the new title sponsor would use that color. Which brand can that be apart from Orange Telecom.

    Orange is the official McLaren color.
    During the Senna years the Red/White was a Honda thing and the Silver livery was basically a Mercedes thing.

    When is the title sponsor being announced?
    I thought they said it'd be in December as soon as the Vodafone deal expired?

    Looks funny like Dutch tulips. Texts are black which are good choice.

    Hope it's not a bad omen for McLaren, but saw one of the teams Trucks being towed along the A27 in Portsmouth yesterday!!! Hopefully the MP4 29 will be more reliable :D.
