McLaren unveils iconic Triple Crown Liveries for Indy 500

Arrow McLaren Racing unveiled their triple threat of Indy 500 liveries for Pato O’Ward, Felix Rosenqvist and Alexander Rossi.

The the team revealed the team’s three distinct designs at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach, with each representing McLaren’s 60th anniversary as well as McLaren’s wins in the Triple Crown – the Indianapolis 500, the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Monaco Grand Prix.

O’Ward is coming off a runner up finish in the 2022 500 and resides second in the NTT IndyCar Series standings. His paint job is a throwback to McLaren’s win in the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans featuring Yannick Dalmas, JJ Lehto and Masanori Sekiya at the wheel.

Rosenvist ended up fourth in the 200-lap contest a year ago and is in his third season with the team. The No. 6 Chevrolet features a throwback to Alain Prost’s win in the 1984 Monaco Grand Prix.

Rossi joined McLaren this season for his seventh season of IndyCar competition. His paint job commemorates Johnny Rutherford’s 500 win in the 1974 Indy 500, a first for driver and team.

The team also features Tony Kanaan, winner of the 2014 Indy 500, as part of their lineup. The Brazilian’s livery will be revealed at a later date.

Zak Brown, CEO of McLaren Racing, was optimistic about the team’s chances for the 107th May classic.

“I don’t think we have a better 4 drivers heading into Indy, said Brown. “I think that increases our odds of trying to get the front row. What’s important is to have all four cars there at the end.

“We came really close with Pato and Felix, of course Alex, our most recent addition, he knows how to win there too.

“I am proud to unveil these iconic commemorative liveries, celebrating McLaren’s historic Triple Crown accomplishment for our 60th anniversary,” said Zak Brown, CEO of McLaren Racing. “They look incredible and I cannot wait to see our guys race them on track.”
