Team Bahrain Victorious have announced their 2021 name and race kit. The announcement comes after a period of instability and uncertainty at the team that saw McLaren step down as the team's secondary sponsor and Team Principal Rod Ellingworth leave after just 18 months in the role.

According to a press release sent out on Monday the team name and new kit are part of "of a change in its strategic direction." Italian brand Nalini has come on board as the kit supplier with Le Col no longer working with the team. 

The team from the Gulf had huge plans coming into the 2020 season, with their hopes pinned on Mikel Landa at the Tour de France. Investment from McLaren was supposed to help improve the roster over the coming season as the squad looked to challenge for major honours but the COVID-19 pandemic rocked the team's financial stability.
