McLaren to reveal new image

A new identity for the Woking based formula one team will be unveiled in January of next year, McLaren announced on Monday.

The three day presentation, including the car livery design for new title sponsor Vodafone, is scheduled for January 14-16 at the Valencia circuit in Spain.

“Further details will follow in due course,” a media advisory read.

Team principal Ron Dennis told reporters at the Chinese grand prix earlier this month: “We are going to move our team in a slightly different direction (in 2007).”

Following the departure of tobacco backer ‘West’, McLaren did not have a title sponsor in 2006.

The presentation will be attended by new McLaren racer Fernando Alonso, and is likely to feature the launch and debut of the MP4-22 car.
