Special coloring machine Alonso in Abu DhabiNovember 22, 2018
The upcoming Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi will be the last stage of Fernando Alonso in Formula 1 at the present stage of his career. Wanting to emphasize this fact, in McLaren have developed a special coloring machine, on which Fernando will perform in the coming weekend.
To the usual colors of McLaren on the engine cover were added blue, red and yellow stripes, symbolizing the colors of the helmet of the Spanish rider. In turn, Fernando’s helmet is painted in honor of his native Asturias region in northern Spain. In addition, the letters FA are added to the top and sides of the machine.
Zach Brown, executive director of McLaren Racing: “We are incredibly happy and proud that this weekend in Abu Dhabi Fernando will perform on a special coloring machine. We want the last Grand Prix to be special for him in all respects, and special coloring is one of the ways to do it.
We worked together with Fernando, FIA and Formula 1 to change the coloring on one race, and they supported this step. I hope, thanks to our decision, Fernando fans will be even more impatiently waiting for this special and emotional weekend. “
