4 February 2011

McLaren has launched its new 2011 MP4-26 F1 car in Berlin.

The new F1 car features a long flat and high nose, high L-shaped sidepods, and revisions to its airbox.

McLaren's decision to reveal its car after the first pre-season Formula 1 test does mean that its main rivals have had three extra days of running, but F1 driver, Jenson Button remains confident about the team's title chances.

Button also commented that he felt far more integrated in the team this year thanks to extensive winter preparation and his good relationship with team-mate, Lewis Hamilton.
