    Like the article said, Ron was always the stick in the mud. My money is on a predominantly orange livery, but I'm never right about these things.
    I would love a little tip of the hat to Bruce McLaren.

    While Ron may be a stick in the mud and maybe this livery speculation is their way of saying " since Ron is out, let's change the colour of the car", Ron is one of those chiefs that has made Mclaren and the MTC at Woking what it is today. He is meticulous and has an eye for attention to detail. They have sold over 10k units of production cars and knows the ins and outs of his cars....which says alot about him. I have read news reports that he might be the "investor" buying a huge stake in Manor. Im pretty sure IF its him, he can bring the "talent pool" with him and take that team and probably turn it around. Why???? Its in his blood.

    Yes, there sure are some hints that point out towards a more red livery next year. Less white better than more white

    I think Ferrari are bound to have some white in their livery, considering their close relationship with Philip Morris and Santander's sponsorship.
    I don't think we'll see an all red livery.

    The red in these shots is not Ferrari red at all..looks more like the F2008.
    I dont think the cars edges will be as pronounced as these shots, nice renditions though.

    RBR is awfully quiet (secretive), anyone hear about their reveal/presentation plans? Also Torro Rosso & Williams.

    About 24 days until first test session!!

    Just added Torro Rosso to the list (post #1), also put in all testing scheduled for the entire year, pre-season, in season & post season.

    First test day is only 3 weeks from today!!!!

    Red Bull will launch its car on the 26th, same day as Toro Rosso. Strange strategy for sure, as RB will surely shadow the Faenza's team presentation...

    Maybe they'll go with that "shadowy" camo livery again.

    Yeah, that camo paint was about the only thing RB ever did that I liked or found amusing.

    I don't know, they used that last year BEFORE the official launch...

    I'm not expecting a full orange livery for McLaren. Remember two years ago, when their colaboration with Honda started? Their Twitter was all red and white, and guess how that ended?
    As for us, the car will probably revert back to the 2014/15 style: Santander branding needs those white wings... which is fine by me: I never understood all the love the old black wings get, it was only naked, unpainted carbon!

    True but that was when Ron Dennis was around. So we might see the papaya orange color. Not to mention the prefix for this years car has changed....they dropped the MP4 prefix this year too...a first.

    Santander could easily use some black backgrounds too, would probably stand out better!

    True, but they kept the number 32 in the name, which still means the 32nd car built after Ron took charge! How idiotic can one be?
    As for the color, the new CEO said, or implied, the new livery won't be "traditional", whatever that means... but the fact is McLaren's traditional color is orange. Anyway, my money goes to a black or grey livery with hints of orange

    I don't think that will happen, quite frankly. I like the white, myself.
    By the way, people saying "white harkens back to the 1993 season, which was a disaster" need to check their memories: the season wasn't that great, that's a fact, but it was miles better than the 1992 one... where the car, the very beautiful but slow F92, was all red

    Can't see it happening either just appearance wise I think it would look better but had the end of the day a livery doesn't win you titles!

    Of course not, but I prefer to look at a beautiful livery than a ugly one

    True, it's a shame we didn't beat the drinks company to the matte paint job, a matte red Ferrari would look immense IMO.

    There are rumours that matte paint will be on other cars this season...
    Back to the white discussion, here's the team's new cap... with a WHITE stripe in it
