Woking, England - Spanish driver Carlos Sainz got into the Valentine's Day spirit by declaring 'love at first sight' on Thursday as McLaren showed off its 2019 Formula One car and line-up.
The blue and papaya orange MCL34 car was unveiled by 34 team employees at the former champions' Woking headquarters before Sainz and 19-year-old British rookie team mate Lando Norris stepped up to admire it.
"I like the new colours. My team-mate, I'll see in a couple of months if I like him," joked Sainz, 24, who has joined from Renault.
The pair, replacing Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne, are McLaren's first all-new driver line-up in 12 years and former reserve Norris, 19, is the Renault-powered team's youngest ever driver.
"I've got a lot to live up to," said the teenager. "There is a lot on my shoulders, a lot of people relying on myself and Carlos."
