Mar.12 (GMM/ McLaren has tweaked the livery of its 2014 car ahead of the Melbourne season opener.

The Mercedes-powered car launched by the Woking based team and tested throughout the winter was all silver, with ‘MP4-29′ marked on the silver sidepods in the wake of title sponsor Vodafone’s departure.

But spotted in the Albert Park pitlane on Tuesday was revised bodywork for the MP4-29’s sidepods, featuring detailed black livery markings reminiscent of the team’s old ‘West’ era.
