Online launch for McLaren’s MP4-29

McLaren has confirmed that their new 2014 car, the MP4-29, will be launched on January 24th, four days before the first day of winter testing kicks off at the Jerez circuit.0030CB1D1113

It will be an online-only, digital unveiling via the team’s website at 12:00pm midday GMT, differing from recent years where the launches have taken place at the McLaren Technology Centre.

The team, who finished fifth in the 2013 constructors’ standings after a dismal campaign, confirmed their driver line-up in November last year, with rookie Kevin Magnussen joining 2009 champion Jenson Button.

The news from McLaren follows the confirmation that rivals Mercedes will take the covers off their 2014 challenger on the morning of the first day of testing in Spain.

McLaren has yet to announce its new title sponsor after previous partners Vodafone parted company with the team at the end of 2013.
