McLaren will say farewell to their MCL36 car with a special one-off livery for this weekend's 2022 season finale, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Having run a special paint scheme in Singapore and Japan, McLaren have taken a different route for the season-ending race at Yas Marina, the team having collaborated with Lebanese artist Anna Tangles for the Abu Dhabi livery – produced for the Driven by Change programme, an initiative launched last year to give underrepresented creatives the platform to showcase their work to a global audience through motorsport.

Last season, the team collaborated with Emirati artist Rabab Tantawy for their one-off Abu Dhabi look.

"As a lifelong F1 fan, I never believed that I would one day have my artwork showcased at a Grand Prix – and it’s all thanks to Driven by Change," said Tangles.

"I dedicate my spare time to training and encouraging other artists, particularly other Middle Eastern female creatives, to embrace their passion and skills, and so it’s a privilege to be a part of a community that supports the same ambition of empowering underrepresented artists in this way."

McLaren will run the livery at this weekend's race – the last for their MCL36 car before it's retired.
