Matching McLaren-Honda F1 Car & P1 GTR Hypercar Pose Together

In order to celebrate the second half of the 2016 F1 season that’s set to kick off in Belgium this weekend, McLaren has put together a small photoshoot with the P1 GTR and the MP4/31 in matching colors.

The two very extreme machines are wearing matching liveries, though with the P1 it would have been harder to keep the stripes in the exact same locations as they are on the F1 car, so the boffins basically had to work around that issue.

A few clear differences are marked by the orange side mirror upper tips or the large lateral stripes being situated on the profile of the car instead of the shoulder line, which is what McLaren-Honda have done with the MP4/31.

Speaking of the MP4/31, the Honda-powered F1 car will be back in action this weekend at Spa where McLaren will look to out-score Toro Rosso and gain a little more ground on Force India and Williams.

Unfortunately for them, Spa is the type of track that mostly rewards the fastest cars on the grid and the Honda power unit remains slower than Mercedes‘, Ferrari’s (both 2016 & 2015) and Renault’s through speed traps this season.
