McLaren MP4-21 Unveiled

Hello, it has been a long long time since my last posting. You may say that I have been kept lazy with the Chinese New Year Festivity, but to start with I would like to post on the subject on the new McLaren MP4-21 which was just unveiled at the McLaren Official website.

Here is two photos of the new MP4-21 which will be driven by Kimi Raikkonen and Juan Pablo Montoya.

On the outside, the new MP4-21 will bear the name of their new sponsor which is Johnnie Walker which replaced West, the tobacco company where tobacco sponsorship is slowly being banned in Europe (but not in Malaysia).

The new MP4-21 will have the new V-8 2,400 c.c engine which is the new requirement under the FIA 2006 rules.

From the extensive testing that were conducted by various Formula 1 teams during the winter time, the new MP4-21 really going to make the rest of the boys i.e. Renault, Ferrari and Toyota a run for their money.

Just cannot wait for the start of the Formula 1 season for 2006 which will happen at Sakhir Circuit at Bahrain on 12 March 2006, that's less than one month to go.
