Just a day after Ferrari announced the F10, McLaren have introduced their 2010 Formula 1 contender, the MP4-25. Coming off a third place finish in 2009 behind Brawn GP and Red Bull Racing, the Woking-based outfit hopes to forget last year's mediocre performance with a new car featuring a "radical aerodynamic overhaul" compared to the MP4-24. Once again, power comes from a Mercedes-Benz V8 that has been slightly tweaked, and a larger fuel tank has also been fitted to comply with new regulations.
However, the real story for McLaren this year might just be its driver lineup. With Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button behind the wheel, it's the first time since Prost and Senna in 1989 that championship-winning drivers have been paired on the same team, and it's the first time that back-to-back champs will be working together. Both will get their first chance behind the wheel on Monday when McLaren begins their pre-season testing in Spain.
