The new Mclaren-Honda MP4-30
With testing for the 2015 Formula One season starting up, Mclaren-Honda have today revealed their car for the upcoming race season.
The first Mclaren-Honda car to participate in Formula One since 1992, the new MP4-30 is fitted with Honda’s 1.6 litre V6 engine, the RA615H. Having controversially been given permission to develop the car over the season, Mclaren-Honda will be hoping to perform better than last seasons fifth place finish in the constructor’s championship. With Button finishing in 8th and Magnussen in 11th, the team will be hoping for better results all round.

In addition to a new car, Mclaren-Honda have added former world champion Fernando Alonso to their team. A turbulent off-season of rumours over which driver Alonso would replace, was finally resolved with Kevin Magnussen making way. With Button and Alonso behind the wheel, Mclaren-Honda will hopefully be challenging for the title. Having two former champions can only improve their chances of victory, the last having come in 1998 for Mika Häkkinen.
