I wonder how much McLaren may be off the pace in areas other than PU such as with suspension and how that integrates with the aero design. How about a rolling road testing system in an aero tunnel set up for Christmas? Ferrari went to great expense to build a new testing tunnel. It seemed that Mercedes developed a great chassis using FRIC until it was banned but no doubt this knowledge has carried through to other legal ideas. Perhaps Brown's focus on the advertising revenue is because they have been resource constrained, holding back McLaren's ability to innovate in all areas of development.

It seems NTT, Chandon and AirGain sponsorships ran out after the 2018 season as they are no longer on the sponsors list.

Was that for services in 2018 or does this represent additional revenue to the team in 2019? What goods or services does Kimoa provide?

Interesting then that Coca-Cola are still on the list as that was announced as being only for the final races of the 2018 season. It's positioning on the list if anything should be read into it, would not suggest a huge increase in commitment for 2019 as yet, and I suspect it was a bit of a sweetheart deal to get a big brand on the sponsor list. Although if there was a big change in money coming in from Coca-Cola then I suspect McLaren would be careful enough to wait until a press release/sponsor launch before adjusting the sponsor list and the lack of a press release saying they have extended their existing agreement would suggest there is at least the possibility of a change for 2019.

Yeah I would imagine that Coca-Cola will go higher up on that list soon, Zac also mentioned a few new brands will be on the car by Melbourne so we will watch this space.

Chandon had prime spots on the MCL33 - RW and Engine Cover, NTT, RW endfence and Nose, AirGain on the mirrors.

My guess is that Mapfre and Estrella will move across to McLaren from Renault with Carlos

The pages for Chandon and AirGain are still on the McLaren website even though they are not on the partner listing anymore which is a bit odd

Looks like NTT is finished because https://www.ntt-mclaren.com now directs you to the main NTT website where there is no mention of McLaren. Hopefully Coca-Cola will fill some of the rather large spaces on the car.

maybe they're increasing /changing their deals - e.g. a differant Chandon brand and there will be new announcements between now and the start of the season

Just because you don't know much about them, doesn't mean the team don't.

Rich Energy and Eyetime as main McLaren sponsors would be cool.

Thanx my bad.

I just happen to read the thread (what ar1 aso said) many times. 

 

Just because I say We, it does not mean I included You.

unless they change the naming convention again for this season - they could be like Ferrari and make up a new one every couple of years  :stoned:
