  1. Those McLaren overalls are disgusting.

    1. And you can’t even see the whole outfit there. It makes the Mclaren drivers look like a couple of rodeo clowns.

      1. I was right during the Live feed blogging when I said this was a circus parade…
        All they need is a red nose to look complete. Completely foolish, that is.

    2. I don’t get it. Who chooses the winners of this contest? Only two of them have been anything but horrible.

      1. No clue how the “winners” are picked.
        But when you look at the design possibilities, you have to wonder how a partnership with Hugo Boss could have resulted in such limited and terrible elements (including colours).


        If you want to go ahead and give it a go for the Brazilian GP, it might be worth trying to dress these McLaren drivers a little less clownish. Enjoy!

          1. Lol it matches perfectly!

  2. Nice, there are some really cool angles here.

  3. Could someone stop the RedBulls?! This is getting boring.

    1. I’m sure they’re trying.

        Yes I hear McLaren is developing a time machine to stop the birth of Adrian Newey

        1. There goes Mclaren’s 98 and 99 titles as well.

  4. Some great pictures here. Closer than usual. The benefit of a street (ish) circuit.

  5. Love the low down pics of the Mercedes and Mclaren
