WOKING, England (AP) Energized by a restructured driver lineup and a renewed relationship with Honda, McLaren showed off its new Formula One car that the English team expects will restore its fortunes.

The McLaren MP4-30 was launched on Thursday, with chief executive Ron Dennis saying it marks "the start of a lengthy journey" back to "winning grands prix and eventually world championships."

McLaren, which hasn't won a grand prix since 2012, will be using Honda engines for the first time since 1992, and has signed two-time world champion Fernando Alonso to partner Jenson Button for the upcoming season.
