Lando Norris takes to the track in MCL35M for first time | F1 News by PlanetF1

The 2021 Formula 1 season suddenly felt much more real as Lando Norris put McLaren’s new challenger, the MCL35M, through its paces.

While changes aesthetically are hard to come by on the MCL35M compared to its predecessor, McLaren will be hoping that the combination of a return to Mercedes power and regulation changes around the floor to reduce downforce, will allow for them to build further on their P3 finish in the 2020 Constructors Championship.

The MCL35M was presented by McLaren on Monday night in front of a live virtual audience, and on the following morning it was over to Norris to put the first laps on McLaren’s new challenger around a damp Silverstone.
