McLaren F1 team has fired up its brand-new Renault-powered MCL33 for the first time ahead of its launching on February 23rd. McLaren joins Mercedes, Ferrari and Toro Rosso in sharing its fire-up via social media.

The final stage of the last season McLaren the switch power unit supplier and lost two weeks of development time, but technical director Tim Goss said his team was able to quickly gain it back.

“I think the big difference is speaking with all the guys at Renault they’ve inherently got a lot more experience,” he said recently. “Those guys that are on the ground have been doing it a lot longer than the guys at Honda, and that’s just a fact. I think that’s what’s allowed us to get the packaging done so quickly.
