Especially for this weekend's Monaco Grand Prix, McLaren have created a one-off Gulf-livery for the MCL35M. Even though Gulf had been a sponsor of McLaren in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and again from 2020 onwards, no McLaren Grand Prix car had sported the iconic Gulf colours until now. The Gulf-blue was seen in period on the M20 Can-Am racer of the 1972 season. The first McLaren to feature a full blue and orange livery was the F1 GTR of which this Longtail is a great example. While regularly used on sports cars, the full Gulf colours have only been used on a single Grand Prix car; the privately entered Tyrrell 007 of Alessandro Presenti-Rossi. He raced the car in these colours in four Grands Prix during the 1976 Formula 1 World Championship. While the 007 was originally restored to its works 'Elf' livery, it has been re-painted in the iconic livery after it joined the formidable ROFGO Collection. Sadly, the striking colours of the MCL35M will only be raced by Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo once.
Ahead of its official debut at the start of the 2022 World Rally Championship, the new Hyundai Rally1 has started testing. It is the first of the new generation of hybrid rally cars that has broken cover. It will be pitched against new Toyota and M-Sport rally cars.
