McLaren has unveiled images of its new 2021 Formula 1 car: the MCL35M, offering fans a first look at the slight revisions heading into the new season.

The MCL35M might be the most anticipated of all the cars on the grid this season as the team switches back to Mercedes power for the first time since 2014.

The inclusion of ‘M’ in the name marks the reunion, and the team will be hoping that the most dominant power unit on the grid can continue to help its charge back towards the top of F1.
