The new McLaren MP4-28

The MP4-28 is the 2nd car after the Lotus E21 that was released for the F1 2013 season.

Before the main presentation of the car, they showed Mclaren road course and F1 cars over the past 50 years including cars from McLaren legends like Bruce McLaren, James Hunt, Ayrton Senna, Mika Häkkinen and Lewis Hamilton.

In front of 250 guets their showed the new car with teamboss Martin Withmarsh and McLaren drivers Jenson Button and Sergio Perez.

The car has no big differences from the last years MP4-27 in the aerodynamics and exhaust system. The engine has been revised, due the last years engine issues.

For the first time since 1990 McLaren has to pay for their engines. McLaren wants to win the constructeurs title after 14 years and of course the drivers title since 2008.

Button is cleary the Number 1 in the team but Perez also plays a big role, especially for the constructeurs championship.
