So we can safely say that  Castrol will supply the fuel and lubricants.  :up:

That was expected really. It would be good choice for Honda.

Ferrari and Mercedes is still an option according to the article. Nothing is decided yet.   ;)

Where would Alonso go if not stay or retire?

All the top team seats are tied up, especially Mercedes and he would not be going back to Ferrari in any case, not unless they are suddenly the team to beat and Raikonnen retires, Vettel doesnt stay.

Merc seats are not tied up, and everyone said he would never go back to Mclaren. No one would have predicted Kimi to return to Ferrari either. The only teams that are no go are RB & TR.

True livery far more striking than the Graphene one off livery apparently.

Dang - the MP4-30 thread got to part 7, I'd hoped that we'd get to part 6, Part 5 of this thread was cut at 80 pages, even with the new software, but this time the admins are letting us have the enhanced page count...shame...

 

Ah well, this year we'll have to make sure that we have the highest page count of any thread...we're good at "debating the finer points"...at length...

The amount of topics actually complies with the amount of problems with the car i noticed. So my hope is the opposite - 3 parts max.  :)

Nah, the 2010 car had almost 27000 replies which would be nowadays 7 parts too. The 2009 car had a few less. 2012 had not *that* much with 17000 replies (~5 parts). 2013 and 2014 was each the worst with 2 parts in the last few years :p

McLaren is set for its biggest livery revamp in years, amid mounting suggestions its 2017 Formula 1 car will run in colours that incorporate its iconic orange branding.

 

Despite this news let's face it the McLaren livery will disappoint us despite this apparent biggest revamp. We are just waiting and hoping it will disappoint us less than in previous years.

Copy the answer from someone from motorsport.com:

Seeing as Mr Brown owns the parent company of Motorsport.com is it safe to assume he is behind this 'story'? His way of developing interest in the team he owns through a medium he owns? Not necessarily a bad thing, just an observation.

 

I am curious how things will go in the future. All exclusive stories for his companies, leaks, hints? As this guy wrote, not necessarily a bad thing, good way to increase interest, but such a double role can also get him into hot water.

I prefer a major quick car revamp, Color is indeed nice to see but I would like that they would be the fastest car.

I think it should be Silver - as in chromed.

Would give them a heck of an advantage in sunny races.

I just watched the 2007 Chinese Grand Prix, and I have to say the very orange Spyker cars didn't really stand out.

Although, that may have been because they were 10s off the pace and just never in camera range...

I was disappointed only in 2014 but this story is actually just a compilation of recent quotes and from them i wouldn't say its gonna be some major revamp. It's likely they will add some orange but it will be a shame if they end up with dull plain orange as in 2006.

It was chrome from 2006-early 2015 (though the chromiest was 2006). It never proved a problem in the sun. But did look very dark at times.

With the thread now going on 82 pages and the discussion moving on to a new car, it seems an appropriate time to close this. Please continue any discussions about the 2017 challenger in the new MP4-32 thread.
