Video - McLaren-Honda MP4-30 F1 car launched

Snapshot: McLaren has launched their Honda-powered MP4-30 F1 car online.

As much as Formula 1 is a show of drivers, it has become more of a technology dependent sport ruled by the car one drives. The F1 cars are not like any other Motorsports car, albeit a technological marvel. The 2015 season is about to start in a few weeks from now and teams are testing their new vehicles. Joining the handful of teams who have revealed their cars, McLaren also launched their Honda-powered MP4-30.

The much awaited car was launched online and is powered by long-lost partner Honda. While many were anticipating a radical new paint job consisting black and white, McLaren opted for more subtle silver livery with more pronounced red from the tip of the sleek nose to the cockpit. There will be no title backer for the team for a second consecutive year.

"It is a thoroughly refined evolution of last year's McLaren," the team said in a statement. "It is the only chassis on the grid to be fitted with Honda's RA615H hybrid power unit, and it features an evolved colour scheme that firmly contextualises McLaren's brand in the 21st century." Apparently, Santander has taken off its sponsorship from the team.

But the good news for McLaren is a completely refurbished team with the arrival of Honda and Fernando Alonso. "Our first target will be to learn the maximum from the car at the pre-season tests, understand the package, and extract as much performance as possible," he said. "That won't be easy or trouble-free, but we're ready for that."
