Grey livery for McLaren & Van der Garde exit

Grey livery for McLaren & Van der Garde exitMcLaren looks set to enter the 2014 season without an orange livery, and without a replacement for departed title sponsor Vodafone.

The great British team has launched a range of new official replica teamwear, and it is a predictable, Ron Dennis-style grey and white.

Moreover, the main lettering on the shirts and caps is simply ‘McLaren‘, while the full team name now reads as ‘McLaren Mercedes’, suggesting a successor for departed Vodafone will not be announced.

The news would seem to end speculation the Woking based team could revert to its traditional orange for the 2014 livery, as the curtain falls on the Mercedes era just one year ahead of the switch to works Honda power.

Meanwhile, in a clear hint that Giedo van der Garde‘s time at Caterham is up, the logos of the Dutchman’s main backer McGregor have been removed from the team’s official sponsor page.

It is believed the Tony Fernandes-led team, having fielded van der Garde alongside Charles Pic last year, is set to enter the 2014 season with Kamui Kobayashi alongside rookie Marcus Ericsson.
