Me and Tommo Reacting to McLaren's 2021 Livery: seworld.info/will/hJDF1JKqe3qLspc/video&ab_channel=Veloce
The first livery of 2021 has been revealed with the launch of the McLaren MCL35M, and whilst the changes to the livery have been minor, one change that has been talked about is the lack of Mercedes branding on their car, in this video I explain why McLaren as a business wouldn't want to promote Mercedes and also talk about the level of powerunit sponsorship throughout the grid.

  • How is this a partnership? It’s a vendor/customer relationship. Big difference. Now perhaps the arrangement has a minor price difference depending on logo placement or lack thereof, but that’s all that could be expected. Anything after that is solely left up to McLaren.

  • You didnt mention one of Mclarens companies, 'marketting' and they are probably serious about branding. I would think discussions happened in the leadership team between marketting, automotive and racing companies. But was it mercedes decsion? or mclarens? or mutual? who knows. Or maybe this arrangement was effecting the price of the engine contract? Maybe some handshaking and deals were made? I personally think its weird having a car with a different companies logo on. Its like me driving a VW Golf but with a Porshe badge instead of VW. Its just ''an incorrect label'', if the badge is on the F1 car then its a sponsor, they paid for that space. But to have a badge because of an engine, to me is unnessesary.

  • Why is this is even a topic for a video. Is it not obvious that these two teams are close competitors and Mercedes is merely an engine supplier. McLaren don’t have to advertise Mercedes whatsoever. Some teams want to promote their engine supplier. Some teams might have it as part of their deal, as in they have paid in part for their engines through advertising.

  • For the minnow mercedes engine users it's probably a case of merc not wanting to pay for the exposure after taking an enforced loss on the engine supply via the engine supply regs.

  • It’s BS, It may not be a requirement or conflict with commercial reasons, but I know I for one was looking forward to seeing the Silver Arrows logo back on the Mclaren, which is when the Mclaren was last successful, but surely it would be a courtesy to display the PU manufacturer, they did with both the Honda and Renault engine, so I know I’m VERY disappointed, and the statement put out by them is a typical avoiding corporate answer... BS, BS, BS....

    Sanat PrasadSanat PrasadMånad sedan
  • One other reason they don't use the Merc logo is due to the fact that Mclaren are just mere customers, they do not have a technical partnership like Williams might have and that Honda certainly has with Red Bull. I feel this is the main difference, the PU is simply a component they have to source to build the car, it is not a reason for 'pride' as many people think due to not having technical partnership like they actually had with HPP in the past.

  • Mercedes honestly don’t need teams to brand them. The championships and the brand’s prestige itself doesnt need branding from other teams, Honda on the other hand does need branding for reasons of proving they can compete with big brands like Mercedes and Ferrari using Honda power. Mclaren just want to brand ‘Mclaren’ even though they’re using Mercedes power units.

  • Mercedes is at the front of the pack and they really don’t need visibility from middle to the back row cars. Unique brand separation is more important as new viewers or sponsors to F1 can see distinction between the cars. The discussion around why McLauren and Ferrari are still aloud to have dominant tobacco sponsorship on their cars, driver clothing and merchandise would be good to have.

  • There's another issue you didn't touch on that may, or may not, be relevant. McLaren has a technical partnership with Volvo Trucks who supply the trucks. (shocking, I know). When McLaren moved to Honda in 2015 they replaced their fleet of Merc trucks with Volvo, and renewed said fleet in 2019. (built and delivered in 2019 afaik, so first used in 2020 though I could be off by a year) There may be some clause in the contract that prevents Merc logo's being displayed on the car in spite of there being no Volvo branding. This conflict of interest would not have been an issue with Renault as Renault Trucks is part of the Volvo Group (Renault trucks are effectively Volvo but with a cheap and ugly cab). I'm very curious to see when, or even if they move back to Mercedes trucks and if that would see the return of the Merc logo on McLaren.
