Oscar Piastri and Lando Norris will have a special ‘Triple Crown’ livery on their Formula One cars for this weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix as part of McLaren’s 60th anniversary celebrations.
The Triple Crown refers to the Indianapolis 500, Monaco Grand Prix and Le Mans 24 Hours races that the British team have won over the years.
McLaren have won 15 times in Monaco since their first success with Frenchman Alain Prost in 1984, the most of any team.
Arrow McLaren will also race with four different special liveries on each of the team’s cars at this weekend’s Indianapolis 500.
The livery embraces and honours McLaren’s Triple Crown achievements in winning the three most prestigious races in motorsport: the 1974 Indy 500 with Johnny Rutherford, the 1984 Monaco Grand Prix with Alain Prost, and the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans with JJ Lehto, Yannick Dalmas and Masanori Sekiya.
Striking papaya elements from McLaren’s maiden Indy 500 winning M16C/D gracefully covers the rear of Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri’s MCL60 before meeting a sharp ice white centre taken from Alain Prost’s 1984 Monaco Grand Prix winning MP4/2. The front end of the 2023 Monaco Grand Prix car is finished in black in tribute to the F1 GTR that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans on McLaren’s first attempt.
The team will continue to run the Triple Crown livery as they finish the May-June double header at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for the Spanish Grand Prix on 2-4 June.
The team was founded by New Zealander Bruce McLaren in 1963.
McLaren won its first Grand Prix at the 1968 Belgian Grand Prix.
