McLaren has unveiled its 2019 Formula 1 challenger, the Renault-powered MCL34, at a launch event in Woking.

The car, sporting a new variation of the 'papaya orange' colour scheme that was brought back the year before, was presented at the McLaren Technology Centre on Thursday.

It features prominent branding for McLaren's new sponsors Estrella Galicia 0,0 and Huski Chocolate, as well as returning partners Petrobras and Dell, and engine supplier Renault.

The MCL34 will be raced by two new drivers in Carlos Sainz and Formula 2 graduate Lando Norris, the pair replacing Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne, who made up the team's line-up in the two previous seasons.

"The feeling within the team is incredible," said sporting director Gil de Ferran. "It is a lot of excitement, a lot of anticipation - and if I cast my mind back to six months ago when I joined team full-time and being in the trenches with everyone, thinking about every single decision, and now seeing car here, in its full glory, it really is an incredible feeling.

"This is a beautiful piece of art, I think it It depicts very well all the capabilities that McLaren has in terms of craftsmanship and engineering."

"This is an exciting time. We focused a lot on our preparations towards this year so I think we are ready and can't wait to get going."
