McLaren MP4-25 was unveiled at Vodafone UK's headquarters in Newbury. New car retains the silver colour of recent years, despite engine partner Mercedes-Benz's switch of focus to its own 'Silver Arrows' outfit. The car features a high shark-fin engine cover running up to the rear wing.

Martin Whitmarsh on launch cheremony said:
"It was Alexander Graham Bell who said preparation is key to success and we have prepared for this season more comprehensively than ever before. As team principal I am honoured to represent this great team, but I am one small part of a group of dedicated and fantastic people. A great team and a competitive car can only succeed with the best drivers. Neither of our drivers need much of an introduction because between them they have won the past two world championships. We are thrilled this year to have Lewis and Jenson represent the team on track. Both drivers are winners and they want to win this year.

"Every year of F1 racing throws up a unique set of regulation challenges, and 2010 is no exception. We have designed a car that exploits the double diffuser concept. We look forward to an exciting championship with many new and notable faces and at least one older one. We remain proud partners of Mercedes-Benz, but we must be at our best to beat the works team."

"Our goal is clear and we aim to win."
