McLaren will unveil their 2014 Formula One car, the Mercedes-powered MP4-29, in a digital-only online launch on Friday January 24, four days ahead of the first pre-season test of the year in Spain.

Images, videos and information about the car will be revealed to the public and media on the Woking team’s official website at 1200 hours GMT.

The news, which effectively confirms McLaren’s presence at the opening test of the year, comes a day after Lotus announced that they would not attend the four-day Jerez session and will instead launch their 2014 challenger ahead of the second test of the year in Bahrain.

Meanwhile, Mercedes, the 2013 constructors’ championship runners-up, confirmed plans to roll out their new car on the opening morning of the Jerez test on January 28.
