Norris reacts to special livery: 'Zak Brown wasn't convinced'

Commenting on McLaren's newly unveiled Gulf Oil livery, British driver Lando Norris states that his car will be by far the most beautiful on the grid this weekend, and reveals a minor disagreement with McLaren CEO Zak Brown regarding the new design.

"It's beautiful", begins Norris as quoted by "I think everyone can agree it will be the best-looking car on the grid by a very long way." In addition to McLaren's classic papaya, the new livery is also adorned by the blue of Gulf oil, long a sponsor of the British racing stable.

"It’s awesome, it’s a cool opportunity for both of us, and especially at Monaco, so I think it brings it all together, it’s pretty unique", Norris said.

Brown disagrees

Norris continued, referencing a disagreement he had with Brown over the design compared to the classic MCL35M: “I said to Zak it looks even better than our current livery but he didn’t sound so convinced by that.”
