Current McLaren drivers Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri will race on the legendary streets of Monaco with a brand new livery. The McLaren F1 team today announced the reveal of the ‘Triple Crown Livery’ as part of the teams 60th anniversary.

The new livery incorporates the teams three victories at the most prestigious races in motorsport: the 1974 Indy 500 won by Johnny Rutherford, 1984 Monaco Grand Prix won by Alain Prost and the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans won by JJ Lehto, Masanori Sekiya and Yannick Dalmas.
