McLaren to feature black streaks on 2014 race livery 12 March, 2014 McLaren, who have yet to announce a title sponsor, have tweaked the livery of their 2014 Formula 1 cars ahead of the Melbourne season opener. The Mercedes-powered car launched by the Woking based team and tested throughout the winter was all silver, with ‘MP4-29′ marked on the silver sidepods in the wake of title sponsor Vodafone’s departure. But spotted in the Albert Park pitlane on Tuesday was revised bodywork for the MP4-29’s sidepods, featuring detailed black livery markings reminiscent of the team’s old ‘West’ era.
