?!? What ?!?
This was maybe 20 years ago... according to my knowledge.
Anyway... different points of view, mate...
TR managed to change their nose cone in the middle of the season, not after 4 races...
Last radical nose-cone change i remember was the RB in 2009, but again in the middle of the season (Silverstone).
Previously the Ferrari F310B nose from ultra low to high back in 1996, but it was mainly to gain performance out of a bad car.
McLaren is already one the 2/3 best cars on the field and this is a huge step, imho.
