McLaren Already Wins Malaysia With Throwback 'Esso' Paint Scheme

I don't care about the dong noses, or even the weird sounding V6s, because the paint schemes (i.e. liveries) from this year's race have been fantastic and McLaren's one-off Esso sponsorship is fantastic.

McLaren doesn't actually have a full-year sponsor now that Vodafone is no longer in the picture, so last week they ran a Mobil ad against their black-on-silver design. It looked good. Now Exxon's forked over a little more cash for a one-off Esso branding. Also looks great with that vintage cursive.
