      Add number of gear changes to the list. I think we've plateuad that aspect with 8.

      https://www.mclaren.com/formula1/par...1-partnership/

      McLaren Racing and Huski Chocolate are proud to announce today a multi-year partnership that will see the Huski Chocolate brand represented on the rear wing of the McLaren 2019 race car, the MCL34. The Swedish company’s branding will also appear on the team’s race drivers, Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris, and team personnel.

      From today, Huski hot and cold chocolate drinks will also be served at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, UK, and in McLaren Racing team hospitality, for team personnel, partners, media and race guests at Formula 1 events around the world.

      Zak Brown, Chief Executive Officer, McLaren Racing, said:
      “We’re pleased to have Huski Chocolate on-board with our team and support the company in their ambitious plans by introducing them to our global sport. I look forward to enjoying a drink together at track, and sharing our adventure with our new partners.”

      Fredrik von Essen, Chairman, Huski said:
      “Huski Chocolate has always been about lifestyle and adventure, so what better platform to support our further expansion than the unique lifestyle of Formula 1. After we met with McLaren at the team’s headquarters in the UK, we were convinced that they were the right partner to help us market our new unique cold chocolate drink worldwide.”

      Let the fat jokes commence.

      Huski? Yoohoo! Sheldon only drinks Yoohoo. And the colors would have worked on the car too.

      I had 45 min to kill at home this morning waiting on a contractor and decided to scan through older F1 race videos on youtube. I've noticed more and more from that time period out there and the one thing that always strikes me as "wow!" is the pit lane speed and pit crew process/attire while changing tires. I guess I was watching circa late 70s / early 80s and am at work now and can't get YT to link anything...but go search. It's incredible to see guys in short sleeves and no gloves change a tire - so much for a 3 sec stop like today. 20-30 second stops were commonplace. And more incredible still to see a GP car at 80mph+ drive ~2 ft past guys in pit boxes with no helmets, nothing. Crazy times before all the safety measure began to take place.

      The offer still stands for free livery/logos/numbers if you need them.

      Boring. I think I was in the minority but I really liked the gray red black livery they’ve had.

      Now I’m just excited for the real reveal today

      There really is just no imagination to any of the F1 liveries anymore. If not for the classy mix of black and gold, it would be utterly boring.

      I love it. Will buy merchandise. A neighbor of mine works for Haas CNC, maybe he can hook me up with a discount on shirts.
