The McLaren MP4-29 was a car produced by McLaren for the 2014 Formula One season. It was the first car to be launched ahead of the 2014 season, and was launched online on 24th January. It was driven by McLaren veteran and 2009 Drivers' World Champion, Jenson Button and débutant, Kevin Magnussen.

The MP4-29 was launched in its interim livery, with the chassis being entirely chrome-silver and the sponsorship locations being filled with the "MP4-29" text. On March 2014, the actual livery was revealed, with a black-coloured sidepod being added.

Despite scoring a double podium at its first race, the Australian Grand Prix, the car performed somewhat disappointingly, as McLaren was left to fight for fifth place in the championship with Force India, a battle the British team won.

The MP4-29 was the most mechanically reliable car, being classified every race except Bahrain and Singapore, where Magnussen and Button retired from these races respectively.

Ultimately, McLaren finished fifth in the Constructors' Championship.


MP4-29H/1X1Edit

An interim car, called the McLaren MP4-29H/1X1, was developed to test the Honda engine for 2015, and was run at a shakedown at the Silverstone Circuit and the 2014 Abu Dhabi Test, albeit very unsuccessfully at the latter. The car was not used in 2015, as the successor, the MP4-30, was completed. The car was driven by Oliver Turvey at the Silverstone shakedown and by Stoffel Vandoorne in Abu Dhabi.
