Video: McLaren's MCL33 bursts into life!


McLaren just brought to life its Renault-powered MCL33, and the delivery was a successful one for the Woking-based outfit and its hard working crew.

Twelve months on from the disastrous genesis of the MCL32, when the first attempt to fire-up the Honda engine resulted in an epic fail, as depicted in the extraordinary Amazon documentary "Grand Prix Driver", McLaren's prospects are looking a lot brighter.

The team will reveal its new car on February 22, but if you wish to sample a snippet of its raucous sound, check out the video below.
