Might just be the pictures but that looks long!

I like the change to a matte orange however not such a fan of the brighter blue, however I guess it ties in with the Dell sponsorship.

Yeah, I feel the same, the orange and blue is not to my liking. But each to his own I guess

I hope MCL 35 will be midfields' leader again in 2020. Car looks very well. Next step to the top in 2021 with Mercedes instead of Renault. :thumbup:

I'm okay with the livery. I think last year's probably looked better, but as the old adage goes nobody will care if it's quick.

This may just be my hopes speaking, but in whatever nebulous ways cars look 'quick' to a non-engineer like me the car looks pretty quick. Very slimmed down. I'm getting hyped! :D

I thought last year's livery was better but still one of the best liveries if not the best even?

The best so far for me, but I know it’s down to personal taste.

I think that once again, yet another F1 team has missed the mark in what should be the simplest way to garner attention initially.
The car itself looks good, but a proper livery goes a long way in helping promote the brand positively, at least initially.

There are plenty of people who could design a far better livery design than this.
Honestly, my kid's could have come up with something this simplistic, though the satin finish on the Orange looks good.
I remember when teams stated that a highly polished finish was worth a few hundredths of a second in lap time. LOL

Seems like this chassis will carry through to 2021 but McLaren will switch to Mercedes engines. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/formula1/51981569

Not sure where that leaves Renault and their drivers though?
