The action is a part of an upcoming collaboration with the cryptocurrency exchange OKX. On the MCL36 F1 vehicles from McLaren, the livery will be visible at the Singapore and Japanese Grands Prix in 2022. This is the first time since 2019 that these events have been held in Asia.

The livery blends the dynamic, cyberpunk-inspired engine graphics and McLaren's Fluro Papaya color scheme with bright pink accents. According to McLaren, the design symbolized the growth of new technologies from the area, including cryptocurrencies and the larger Web3 industry.
