McLaren unveil striking Senna livery for Monaco GP

The McLaren Formula 1 team has unveiled a distinctive new livery for the Monaco Grand Prix weekend.

The new color scheme pays tribute to three-time world champion Ayrton Senna, who celebrates his 30th anniversary this year.

Senna won all three of his titles at McLaren before moving to Williams in 1994. During the San Marino Grand Prix, he died following a high-speed accident.

McLaren has adopted a special livery at a number of races in recent years, including during previous trips to Monaco.

The Senna-related change was inspired by his famous racing helmet, which prominently featured the yellow and green colors of the Brazilian flag.

Senna remains the most successful driver in the history of the Monaco Grand Prix, having won the race a record six times.

McLaren drivers Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri will also wear racing suits to complement the uniform, while the track team will wear a Senna-inspired kit.

“The team is proud to acknowledge and celebrate the extraordinary life and racing legacy of Ayrton Senna through this McLaren livery,” McLaren CEO Zak Brown said.

“Senna remains revered and respected as Formula 1’s greatest icon, and McLaren’s most decorated driver.

“His influence on McLaren is enormous, not only through his racing record but also through his presence within the team, and now his legacy, so it is a huge honor to race with him at his most successful track in the green, yellow and blue colours.”

McLaren enters the Monaco Grand Prix weekend in strong form, with three podium finishes in the last three events, including a win in Miami.
