Subtly – with a tweet in quest form – McLaren announced today the intention of changing its colours. Fans request with emotion the white and red livery from Honda times, which may come back in Australia.
When it was known that Mercedes may leave McLaren and that Honda may come back to Formula 1 with the British team, dreams of seeing back on track a white and red car came to all Formula 1 fans. But deception was huge when new livery was presented in grey again.
McLaren was silver for Mercedes-Benz, manufacturer of their engines since 1995. Although, grey livery was not adopted until 1997, when Marlboro left as sponsor.
This morning and first test day in Jerez circuit, a tweet from official account woke hope again:

Ask for white and red is massive as expected. Will see what is decided and if new design is launched. Impatience came back to all fans again.
