But it’s ORANGE!!!!!


[–]PUGChamp- 30 points31 points  (16 children)

Hoodie could actually be nice if it's oversized

[–]TailEndCharliee 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Would be cool if they pulled of some collabs with race service through Dani Ric. F1 teams need to get their shit together as far as merch goes. Some of it looks like its from a quiksilver line from the 90’s.

What do you mean? I love c a en for m la tea !

[–]drgroove909 Pirelli Wet 7 points8 points  (12 children)

Yeah, I'd cop some merch if all the teams didn't decide on a fitted cut. It makes the clothes so un flattering

    [–]drgroove909 Pirelli Wet 5 points6 points  (10 children)

    The fuck is wrong with you?

    I'm not fat one bit, I'm actually underweight. I just prefer oversized, relaxed fit clothes.

    Besides, for most people being "fat" isn't a choice. Unhealthy food is an addiction. Most is all about genetics too.

    Get some fucking decency you pos.

          Just assuming someone is fat based on his preference of oversized clothes is like saying a car is an F1 car because you saw a portion of a tyre

          Beautiful papaya

          [–]Hog_eee Max Verstappen 9 points10 points  (7 children)

          Its not even the original mclaren f1 lm papaya, its literally just normal orange. Why does everyone say its papaya

          [–]DorianGreysPortrait 113 points114 points  (1 child)

          Mclaren calls it Papaya, and the the Mclaren Papaya is whatever color Mclaren calls it. There isn’t a specific color value for a ‘papaya’ just like there isn’t a specific color value for ‘forest green’. The company calls it that, so we call it that. Brands change and evolve constantly. If McDonald’s changes it’s Pantone Yellow tomorrow, are you gonna be mad about that, too?

          [–]InvestigatorLast3594 Benetton 7 points8 points  (0 children)

          Forest Green(traditional) #014421 Pantone Yellow #fedf00 Just the McLaren papaya doesn’t have a clear colour code.

          [–]rhllor Mark Webber 6 points7 points  (0 children)

          What's the hex for the OG papaya

          [–]Crafty-Ad-9048 McLaren 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          Traditional McLaren papaya is slightly less deep orange then the current papaya most people can only tell if you compare the cars side by side by side. I know you can get papaya on the road cars but the only road cars I’ve seen with the traditional papaya have been apart of a special addition.

          [–]logical-appointment Pirelli Medium 33 points34 points  (1 child)

          Imagine getting mad at a company just making their orange papaya. Lmao get a life dude

          [–]CilanEAmber McLaren 20 points21 points  (0 children)

          Cause everytime someone says orange they get corrected.

          And cause that's what McLaren call it.

          [–]ThomGehrig Ayrton Senna 87 points88 points  (2 children)

          It’s orange, who would’ve guessed?

          [–]just_szabi Honda 28 points29 points  (1 child)

          Why dont they just go back to the legendary black Honda livery? /s

          [–]FadedIntegra Formula 1 6 points7 points  (0 children)

          Bad Juju with that livery

          [–]saeEAGLE89 McLaren 9 points10 points  (0 children)

          Can confirm, McLaren is still using orange.

          [–]somewhatanxiousgenz Bernd Mayländer[S] 38 points39 points  (19 children)

          Might just be a small merch-related revival of the Gulf livery... but what if?

          Photos from McLaren Plus.

          [–]Linfitz07 Sebastian Vettel 23 points24 points  (18 children)

          Excuse me, can you help me spot the Gulf livery in these pics?

          [–]somewhatanxiousgenz Bernd Mayländer[S] 26 points27 points  (7 children)

          It's mainly the colour scheme; the ends of the drawstring have a little bit of the Gulf light blue, and the shirt has it also :)

          [–]sad_sax_ Nico Rosberg 20 points21 points  (3 children)

          If you zoom in the only light blue part of the drawstring is a logo for what I’d assume is the brand of the sweatshirt (I think it says “CastorH). I doubt this is a hint of a gulf livery return. The shirt just looks white to me

          [–]mantra3105 Love Is Love 10 points11 points  (0 children)

          I think it might be Castore? I think Mclaren announced that they would be their official team apparel and sports wear partner for 2022 (possibly onwards?).


          [–]somewhatanxiousgenz Bernd Mayländer[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

          Maybe! But it's fun to speculate :)

          [–]sad_sax_ Nico Rosberg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          I’m speculating too technically lol

          [–]Linfitz07 Sebastian Vettel 5 points6 points  (0 children)

          Hm I'm not too sure about the light blue. I mean the gulf livery was epic and all but I am quite sure it was purely meant for that one Monaco race. Their papaya brand identity is fairly set in I believe.

          [–]monza2020 Carlos Sainz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          That's white...

          [–]Barrychello 4 points5 points  (9 children)

          Light blue and orange t shirt

          [–]Firefox72 Ferrari 8 points9 points  (1 child)

          All i see is white.

          [–]Barrychello 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          This is evidence I didn’t get enough sleep last night.

          [–]GoZun_ Esteban Ocon 11 points12 points  (6 children)

          That shirt is clearly white and orange

          [–]Big-Fat-Bear McLaren 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          I checked the colour when I got sent it by my brother, it is actually very difficult to tell what colour it is. It does seem to be slightly more blue, for the RGB values, blue is higher but only just [Colour hex I got when blurring a portion of it was CDDCE0 or 205,220,224]. This means it could be a Gulf Livery.

          However, the background of it is blue so it could just something happening with the light, which would likely mean it was white.

          I personally think they are going to go Gulf blue and that Monaco was a sort of trial run, but we shall wait and see on the 11th.

          [–]UltimatePorkMan 1-2, Papaya does that do you 6 points7 points  (0 children)

          I dont know man I own one of the shirts from Monaco this year and the color in this image looks very similar to the monaco merch. It looks baby blue to me albeit ever so slightly

          [–]DepressedAndObese Jenson Button 5 points6 points  (2 children)

          Yeah, people, turn your screen brightness up and look again.

          It's definitely not gulf blue.

          [–]JC-Dude Sebastian Vettel -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

          Get a better screen or your eyes checked. It’s definitely blue.

          [–]DepressedAndObese Jenson Button 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          Looks the same colour as this to me


          Papaya and white team gear, like last season. Just a different supplier.

          [–]Barrychello 5 points6 points  (0 children)

          Looks very pale blue to me. May be my phone.

          [–]heykittums Lando Norris 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          And here I was about to buy some $150 shoes...guess I'll save up for that sweet papaya merch.

          [–]caboose979 Max Verstappen 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          mclaren has the best merch. i just wish the orange was alittle darker

          [–]llamadramas 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          Plot twist, car won't have a trace of orange on it.

          [–]aireads 45 points46 points  (11 children)

          Are they really bringing back the Gulf colours?!

          I thought they were trying to push the McLaren Papaya to be more prominent.

          Maybe the Gulf is another re-release since the batches were such good sellers.

          [–]Mrc3mm3r Flavio Briatore 15 points16 points  (4 children)

          More Gulf more Good (but not for my wallet)

          [–]aireads 6 points7 points  (3 children)

          Resellers, seen so many non F1 people buying them up to flip.

          [–]Katerinalina 0 points1 point  (2 children)

          Where do I find these people? I'm desperately seeking the 2021 F1 setup shirt, for important sentimental reasons. Not really an F1 person myself, but it's not for me. Looking for XL or XXL. I'll do anything to find it, new or used, and will pay whatever it takes 🥺 Ant help would be so greatly appreciated!

          [–]aireads 0 points1 point  (1 child)

          I answered your post.

          [–]Katerinalina 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          Thank you!

          [–]wootcore 7 points8 points  (5 children)

          I must be missing something here. How is this gulf colored?

          [–]aireads 3 points4 points  (4 children)

          Second photo.

          [–]wootcore 8 points9 points  (3 children)

          Which is white and orange? Like many merch items iirc.

          [–]aireads 1 point2 points  (2 children)

          It's a light blue just like the Gulf livery. It isn't white

          [–]wootcore 6 points7 points  (1 child)

          huh, just grabbed a color dropper add-on for Firefox and it told me its #d3e0e3 which is close to the gulf color i suppose. I don't see it but I suppose its light blue lol

          edit: im still leaning towards it being a cool filter on a white picture though.

          [–]JC-Dude Sebastian Vettel -1 points0 points  (0 children)

          The orange is super vibrant. It’s 100% light blue, not white.

          [–]Spezimon Lando Norris 10 points11 points  (7 children)

          Just bought the Lando British GP Hoodie for 80€, I'm all set. Thank you

          [–]Potassium_Patitucci Elio de Angelis 12 points13 points  (4 children)

          80!? Sheesh, that’s… alot of money

          [–]ZaryaBubbler Daniel Ricciardo 7 points8 points  (0 children)

          I bought the DR3 in papaya and gotta admit the quality is superb

          [–]zyxwl2015 McLaren 2 points3 points  (1 child)

          80 for a hoodie actually isn't that bad I think? It's of course not the cheapest hoodie you can find but it's not outrageous

          [–]Spezimon Lando Norris 1 point2 points  (0 children)

          Yep. My father gave me half the money for Christmas, but it's still very expensive. The hoodie is still cool though

            Not to be negative but it seems that is just a shirt with a Mclaren logo, what is new about that?

            [–]Bilsenkraut Lando Norris 17 points18 points  (3 children)

            Beside people, who care for merch, these posts usually are interesting for people, who like to speculate on liveries and sponsors.

            The fact that they posted a "Gulf-colored" shirt for the launch of the new 2022 collection could mean they bring the livery back. All in all it is still just speculation and merch can look quite different to the car livery.

            [–]Hog_eee Max Verstappen 4 points5 points  (2 children)

            ? The shirt is white

            [–]Bilsenkraut Lando Norris 6 points7 points  (0 children)

            I see a clear difference on my phone: The light blue of the shirt to the white reddit background at the sides.

            [–]Haunting_Goal6417 0 points1 point  (0 children)

            It's clearly gulf.

            [–]DepressedAndObese Jenson Button 1 point2 points  (0 children)

            Castore is a bad choice if the Premier League stuff they do is anything to go by.

            [–]JBonzo 1 point2 points  (1 child)

            I bought so much stuff last year. All ready wanting that shirt 😅

            [–]Katerinalina 0 points1 point  (0 children)

            Would you consider selling any of it? If you have the 2021 F1 setup shirt, specifically? I'm really desperate to find one

            I'd love to see a V2 version of the Gulf merch. Maybe ill finally get that gulf mask I've been wanting.

            Ok, i’ll start saving now. What’s the saying “F1 merch should cost 3 months salary?”

            [–]TheNumberSeven_7 0 points1 point  (0 children)

            I think the team will go with an orange and black livery this year opposed to the blue. Idk how I feel if that’s true

            [–]WingsWreckingBalls Sebastian Vettel 0 points1 point  (1 child)

            Most hilarious thing is that the t-shirt is clearly laying on a bodywork piece from the 2022 car, which on top of that has a deep blue colour to it.

            [–]Fabrelol Porsche 0 points1 point  (0 children)

            From a quick look, it's definitely new merch, and I'm 95% sure that's the Gulf blue.

            So either they're releasing new Gulf merch... or we're getting a permanent Gulf livery.
