McLaren Mercedes MP4-29 Released
Introducing the McLaren Mercedes MP4-29, our 2014 Formula 1 car. See the photos of the new McLaren MP4-29 below.
2014 marks a technical sea-change for Formula 1 cars. Gone are normally aspirated engines – a Formula 1 mainstay for a quarter of a century; in their place come 1.6-litre V6 power-units, which sophisticatedly integrate turbo-charging and turbo-compounding, fuel-flow restrictions, and a powerful energy recovery system (ERS).
