McLaren Readies For New F1 Season By Going 'Back To The Future'

Follow Jeff

McLaren is no doubt eager to get the 2015 Formula One season underway. Drivers Fernando Alonso and Jensen Button will be tasked with putting the new Honda-powered MP4-30 race car on the podium, but it's not quite time for them to do so. The two are getting antsy, but there's a release from the tension in the form of a time-travel-capable McLaren 650S.

The team in Woking may have been watching a lot of Back to the Future lately, so they've decided to spoof the (still awesome) film from the '80s. Button does his best McFly impersonation while Alonso is, we guess, giving it a go with his best Doc character. The DeLorean is gone, but the 650S should be able to get up to the necessary speed in less time and space.

Rather than go back in time, however, Button has a way to get this season rolling already. The time coordinates are set, the throttle is mashed, and you know what's going to happen next. Too bad we can't make that trip with them. Instead we just have to wait until March.
