McLaren Racing Executive Director, Zak Brown, revealed to Autosport that the British adversary in 2018 will show the most changes in all teams.
"The car will not look the same as last year, McLaren's visibility will go to the next level and it will be interesting," Brown said. "We know a lot of teams, but we hope people will see the biggest change on and off the track at McLaren going to Australia."
He added that McLaren has signed three additional sponsors for 2018 and that some papaya papers still have to be done. He also mentioned that the new new look of the team will continue in the garage, helping them stand out from the rest of the pitch.
"This exercise has produced a plan that does not require a" title partner "," he commented. "There is still a need for a" main partner ", not just a" title partner ", I know it's semantic there, but it's about protecting McLaren's name, that's all I'm trying to do is keep this and let us we can keep as McLaren
Apparently, Brown thinks that when a sponsor's name becomes part of the team's name, it "slightly reduces the value of the team's name."
