McLaren’s IndyCar outfit have shown off an interim testing livery on their car as they conducted Aeroscreen testing at Sebring.
The fourth planned Aeroscreen test ahead of the full introduction of the device in 2020 took place on Tuesday at Sebring in Florida. In attendance were two teams – tasked with running the Aeroscreens on the Dallara DW12 in a simulated street circuit environment.
Dale Coyne Racing were in attendance with Sebastien Buemi at the wheel of their car, while Arrow McLaren made their debut as a new entity by sending Patricio O’Ward – this test was originally scheduled with Arrow SPM and James Hinchcliffe.
The real McLaren 2020 livery is yet to be revealed, meaning that the team showed off an interim camouflage style livery that hinted at the familiar, but lighter, papaya colour used by the Formula 1 team.
As for when the permanent McLaren 2020 livery might be revealed, team boss Sam Schmidt hinted last week that it could be seen this side of the new year: “Stay tuned. I think there’s a plan and I honestly think it’s in the probably next 30, 45 days, so.”
This Dale Coyne Racing and McLaren test concludes the Aeroscreen testing programme, having carried out four separate tests in the last month. All types of circuit were used for testing including Indianapolis as the Superspeedway, Barber Motorsports Park as the road course and Richmond Raceway for a short oval test.
