McLaren is the first team to launch its 2021 Formula 1 car - the MCL35M. In this video Edd Straw looks at the key changes the team has been able to make to adjust to the switch from Renault to Mercedes power, and where McLaren stands on its planned road to recovery following its third place finish in the championship last year

    McLaren seems to be making all the right moves. The car keeps slowly working its way up the field, and they now have two of most personable and marketable drivers. I still hate that dream-sickle flat orange.....but excited to see if they are getting even closer to the top of the field.

    2nd place if they win Aston Martin and Ferrari.Redbull cant win with only 1 driver so GG i will be so happy seeing Sergio Perez underperfom in a car like Redbull beacause only Max can drive it at its fullest and there is a lot of complain by him as well.

    How everyone finishes in the championship below second will probably boil down to how well Lance Stroll does this year. Aston Martin's fight for third with McLaren should be a good one. Could even gain some significant ground on Red Bull. Renault, Ferrari, and Alphfa Tauri's fight for 5th is anyone's guess. Williams could even get into the mix. I am glad to see the turn around by McLaren. I hope it continues.

    awesome video, as always! good job! here's one for you: the new McLaren doesn't have the bulge on the engine cover that we see on both Mercedes and AM. granted, Williams doesn't have it either, but that's due to an obvious lack of funds (god that car is sponsorless). did McLaren missed that trick or were they not allowed to do it because of the limitations of the engine change?

    I think McLaren deserves to be on top urgently, and given their progress since 2019, I hope they can achieve more podiums and race victories (at least 4 wins will be a great reward for them). As for the aero flaws, I think they can solve it and find that "sweet spot".

    I think they'll have their eyes set on 2nd, but Racing Point did them some favors last year in giving up their #3 spot. I think the bronze medal is going to be even tougher to hold this year, and dodging a setback will keep McLaren busy. Ferrari has a new engine and Aston Martin will have more experience with the Merc engine. Should be a crazy battle for best of the midfield.

    Not sure changing for Mercedes was the right move at the right time, specially the right time. So far they could have focus more on their team's capacity and build something new for 2025 with Mercedes. The Renault engine is coming back nicely and Renault treated McLaren as an equal. Just a matter of perspective

    Appreciate the man adjustments t the car to accommodate the engine. I expect the introduction of Danial R to the team to further improve the car through his experience and close relationship with engineers. Hoping that the two drivers work together to maximise updates which will allow the TEAM to further advance its competitive edge in the mid-field and close the gap to the leaders .... increasing the pressure on those ahead redulting in more competitive racing for ALL fans. Keen to see the results of every time this new car is on the track.
