England: McLaren have unveiled their new MP4-29 car for the coming Formula One season with the hope of improving on the team's worst performance for nearly a decade. With its narrower front wing, lower nose and smaller rear wing, McLaren are counting on the new car to deliver after finishing fifth in the constructors' championship last season.

"We have responded to the disappointment of our 2013 season by pragmatically framing our approach to the (new) technical challenge," McLaren said in a statement on Friday. "The new MP4-29 ... is a sensible and calculated response to the new regulations."
Among the changes in regulations for this season is the replacement of the 2.4-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine with a 1.6-litre V6 turbocharged motor. McLaren's lead driver, Jenson Button, achieved the team's highest finish last season when he came fourth in the Brazilian GP.
