Storyline

The ramifications of not making shakedown are being felt throughout the factory. The floor has finally turned up. However, there are not enough parts to make a dummy car for the launch and a working car for testing, which takes place immediately after the car launch. For the car-build team, it means long hours to get only one car ready for both events. It's the day of the car launch which has attracted media from all across the world. The design of the car has been a closely guarded secret and this will be the first time anyone will see what the team at McLaren-Honda has been up to. We follow the frenetic activity on launch day from the point of view of the management, drivers, guests and journalists. Just before they are due to go on stage, we catch up with Stoffel and Fernando who are eagerly anticipating the design and speed of their new car. Down in the race bay, the engineers are finalizing the build and preparing the car for the first test in Barcelona.
