McLaren F1 team is perhaps one of the most successful and competitive Formula One teams in the world, and this is in fact a team with a no nonsense culture. The Woking based team worked seriously for 24-7, pours millions of dollars building and researching to make their Formula One machine a race winner. Understanding they need to show some fun side just like their rivals, Red Bull Racing, McLaren F1 decided to show a lighter side of themselves by releasing a new family friendly CG animation video.
A brand new animation series from McLaren F1!
The series, named “Tooned”, features animation talents from the UK and features none other than McLaren F1 drivers themselves, Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, showing their antics in the F1 world. First broadcasted on last week’s British GP telecast by Sky UK, it was well received by many people, including the drivers themselves.
“It was good fun,” explained Hamilton. “It was not our idea; we were asked to do it and we didn’t know what it was going to look like”.
Seriously, Lewis’s face indicates he will become a villain in future episodes
The video is shown as below, and the animation style reminded us of the this animation movie “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”. This is just episode one and Sky will broadcast the future episodes in the upcoming races.
