Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 website successfully relaunched

.....ahead of 2013 grand prix season



In Formula 1, the mantra is old but remains timeless: stand still and you go backwards.


Together with the developers of www.mclaren.com/formula1, we have certainly taken that philosophy to heart, using the off-season to revive, refresh and reinvigorate the official Vodafone McLaren Mercedes website ahead of the start of 2013 FIA Formula 1 World Championship in Melbourne this weekend.


The new website builds upon the cutting-edge content and award-winning functionality of its predecessor, which pioneered the use in F1 of the website as a second-screen experience, launching its much-imitated ‘dashboard’ telemetry, data and radio live feed back in 2010. It also spearheaded the integration of social media.


Fresh-for-2013 features on www.mclaren.com/formula1 include:


-    Customisable interface: the site now includes the facility to alter the appearance of the newsfeed to suit your browser or your reading habits


-    Responsive formatting: the site now operates seamlessly on either desktop, tablet or mobile


-    Greater social integration: the site much more strongly reflects the narrowing gap between traditional websites and the diffusion of social media channels. The whole website is defined by its shareability


-    Greater use of video and interactive content: videos and photography galleries are bigger, bolder and more impactful, utilising HTML5 functionality.


-    Fantastic partner cross-promotions: the new format really gives our partners the opportunity and platform to work with us to create uniquely compelling stories and content



Additionally, the race dashboard, now re-christened ‘McLaren LIVE’, will feature an improved interface and greater functionality and shareability for the 2013 season.


Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team principal Martin Whitmarsh said:



“Vodafone McLaren Mercedes has developed a reputation for its forward-thinking approach to digital and social media. We were the first Formula 1 team to offer fans the opportunity to view our telemetry and experience our radio conversations live during races and practice sessions; we were the first front-running team to start using Twitter [in March 2009]; more recently, we embraced the full breadth of our social media platforms to spectacularly live-stream the MP4-28 car reveal.


“As in all aspects of Formula 1, however, if you don’t develop and innovate, you go backwards, so it’s extremely pleasing to see that the latest iteration of www.mclaren.com/formula1 has once again moved the goalposts. It sets a very high benchmark for all teams in Formula 1.


“The aim is to bring our followers closer to the heart of a living and breathing Formula 1 team. Now, more than ever, www.mclaren.com/formula1 offers a deep and enriched user-experience, is easier to use and provides unique and authoritative content on the team.


“It’s a fantastic addition to the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes brand.”
