Woking, United Kingdom – McLaren-Honda unveiled its new machine, the McLaren-Honda MCL32, prior to its winter testing at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, for the upcoming 2017 FIA* Formula One World Championship.
The Honda RA617H, 1.6-litre V6 turbo engine with ERS, has a decreased weight and a lowered centre of gravity to improve the balance of the car, while generating more output out of the ICE [internal combustion engine]. Its power unit will be fitted into the MCL32 for the 2017 season.
The MCL32 follows in the evolutionary footsteps of its two immediate predecessors, MP4-30 and MP4-31, but has been overhauled in every area as the design team has looked to capitalise on a series of new aerodynamic regulations introduced for 2017.
