McLaren will run with a special one-off livery at this weekend's Formula 1 season-opening Australian Grand Prix.
With the team hoping to announce a new title sponsor later this season, it has decided to run in Melbourne with a unique colour scheme to honour the 20th anniversary of its technical partnership with oil supplier Mobil.
The sidepods and rear wing of the MP4-29 will feature the logos and branding of Mobil and its Mobil 1 products.
Artis Brown, global motorsports manager of Mobil 1, said: "We are proud to celebrate our relationship with McLaren this weekend and we are looking forward to an exciting season."
