McLaren to stay Chrome in 2011

McLaren have put an end to rumours that they were planning to ditch their now famous chrome livery next season in favour of black paintwork. The launch of McLaren's new black and red official clothing range for the 2011 season had led many to wonder if the team were wanting to differentiate themselves from former works partner Mercedes, who also compete in a silver-liveried car. However, the Woking based team announced on their official Twitter feed, TheFithDriver, that no such thing was on the cards. Their tweet simple read: "Black livery? Er, no," McLaren then further confirmed that they were sticking with their chrome livery by adding that the colour scheme for 2011 would be "the same Rocket Red and chrome finish that you've grown to love since Vodafone McLaren Mercedes was born in 2007".
