The retro livery marks McLaren’s tribute to Gulf’s timeless design.
McLaren Racing and its strategic partner, Gulf Oil International, today unveiled an innovative special livery celebrating their historic partnership with a unique iconic design for the 2021 Monaco Grand Prix, May 20-23. The evocative livery marks the return of sport to one of Formula 1’s most iconic grand prix events and brings fans one of the most recognisable and admired motorsport liveries of all time.
McLaren has a deep and successful racing history with Gulf, and the two brands re-launched their relationship in July 2020 when the team announced the brand’s return as an official strategic partner. The retro livery will mark McLaren’s tribute to Gulf’s timeless design while reflecting a racing connection that began in the days of team founder Bruce McLaren.
Throughout the Monaco Grand Prix weekend, the team will wear the Gulf blue colour scheme along with an orange stripe, inspired by the classic Gulf design. The theme will appear on both MCL35M race cars, Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo’s race suits, the race team kit and on all of the team’s social media platforms.
In addition, Lando and Daniel will wear bespoke retro-designed racing helmets, specially created for the event, which will be raffled off in aid of Mind, the team’s mental health charity.
The 2021 Monaco Grand Prix will not be the first time a McLaren race car has worn the iconic Gulf livery. The No. 41 McLaren F1 GTR Longtail finished second at the 1997 24 Hours of Le Mans while wearing Gulf’s racing blue and neon orange colours.
