    Or it would end up as a second Grand Prix of Trulli Train (first one being Monaco) due to the road often being too narrow to overtake.

    Oh for sure it'd be too narrow to race on, I meant more for shits and giggles to see if an F1 car could get round it in one piece.

    Rumours of McLaren BMW Link seems to be based McLaren partnering with them for a road car as well as BMW apparently working on a V6 turbo.

    ...well that didn't last long.

    McLaren and Jost Captio part ways

    I'll update the OP later... but the McLaren is no longer the MP4-dash-whatever... it's the MCL32...

    With Big Ron out of the picture, it looks like McLaren is going to revert to orange livery. Apparently, Dennis was the only reason they hadn't reverted sooner.

    You mean the 2017 car won't look like a Hispania?

    Disappointing.

    I was actually hoping to see them with white, green and red like the old JGTC Castrol Hondas/Toyotas of the 90s and the Castrol Honda GP/Super bikes.

    But given recent history all Orange everything would do nicely too.

    Weirdly reminds me of the Rothmans Williams livery of old, nice though.

    I like the gold accents.
    Definitely better looking than last year.

    I'll be honest, apart from the rear wing and the return of the shark fin on the engine cover, i'd struggle to highlight what's different from a 2016 car.

    But at least the prize money for 10th left them enough spare change for an actual paintjob this year.
