The McLaren MP4-19 is a Formula One racing car that was built by McLaren. It was designed by Adrian Newey, and introduced at the beginning of the 2004 Formula One season. It was described as a "debugged version of the McLaren MP4-18." It was not a successful car, and the team suffered various problems concerning reliability at the beginning of the season. A new car was required by mid-season. The MP4-19B was basically an all new car with a radically redesigned aerodynamic package. The fact that Coulthard qualified third for its first race, the French Grand Prix, gave the team hope of a better end to the season. This was justified when Räikkönen won the 2004 Belgian Grand Prix.
The team eventually finished fifth in the constructors championship with 69 points.
