Lewis Hamilton have McLaren’s new MCL33 contender two thumbs up yesterday as he responded to a message posed by former foe Fernando Alonso on Instagram.
McLaren unveiled yesterday its stunning ‘papaya orange’ racer which it hopes will lead its charge up the field in 2018 after three years of purgatory for the Woking-based outfit.

A thoroughly impressed Hamilton posted his first impression of the striking MCL33 design.
“Looks dope bro, McLaren looking as it should,” commented the four-time world champion and former McLaren driver.
“Looks good man, hope to be closer to you guys, see you in bcn [Barcelona]” responded an optimistic Alonso.
In the past, Hamilton often lamented the lack of success of the team which brought him his first world title in 2007 and expressed his wish to see McLaren and Alonso race at the front once again.
