RACE DEBRIEF

    McLaren have become the latest team to confirm the launch date of their 2017 challenger.

    The Woking-based team will unveil the Honda-powered MP4-32 on February 24 - the same day as rivals Ferrari reveal their new car.

    McLaren finished sixth in last year’s constructors’ standings, but are hopeful that their new machine - which will be piloted by Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne, and powered by a newly laid out Honda power unit - will bring them better fortunes.

    2017 car launch calendar:

    Renault - February 21 Force India - February 22 Mercedes - February 23 Ferrari - February 24 McLaren - February 24
