SIG­NA­TURE SHADE BACK ON THE F1 GRID

Herald Sun - Motoring - - PRESTIGE -

WHEN McLaren’s Kiwi founder wanted his team’s For­mula One cars to stand out from the pack back in 1968, he chose orange. The colour was kept only un­til 1971, the year af­ter the ta­lented Bruce McLaren was killed in a test­ing crash in Bri­tain, yet it be­came the hue most as­so­ci­ated with the brand name. Orange has been re-adopted for McLaren’s 2017 sea­son MCL32 For­mula One cars.
