McLaren have been teasing their fans about the release of their 2019 car for sometime now.
The car is scheduled to be released on the 14th of February this year and fans are extremely excited about what the livery this year will look like.
With Coca-Cola coming on board for the last two races of the 2018 season, the rumoured livery was supposed to have Coca Cola on it.
In an recent interview, Zak Brown had also confirmed that at least two new sponsors were coming in for next season.
Amidst all this, an image was circulating on social media today, one which was claimed to be released on McLaren’s facebook page(as its cover).
The image had the car release date on it along with Coca-Cola on the rear wing. The number styling was also very similar to the one that was released by McLaren a day ago.

McLaren posted this as their background on Facebook. But they deleted it, so is this how MCL34 will look like? Or is it just troll or shitty Photoshop. <or both> #MCL34 @McLarenF1 pic.twitter.com/SbF0uGJ95p

McLaren though have shot down those reports, confirming that the image was never leaked on their Faceboook page.
Nice try, but this definitely didn’t come from any of our channels!

The image was initially tweeted by the twitter account, ‘f1_universe’.

Looks like we’ll have to wait for the MCL34 to come out on the scheduled day itself. But strong reports still suggest that Coca-Cola could certainly make an appearance on the livery as it has agreed to a long term deal with the team.
