McLaren MCL34

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

I still don’t understand why you’d have those fat cameras right in the way of the rear wing. Or does the airflow not behave in the fashion I think it does!

They're just for testing, they'll be off come saturday - they have camera's and IR sensors in there to watch the front and rear tyres, etc.

Is it just me or does the body work look more defined here than in testing?

Same sidepods. Probably just the better lighting.

Car looks fantastic. Amazing details on the diffuser. Great to see all the effort the team is putting into aero. Can't believe this car is just midfield. Looking forward to quali to see it's real speed. 👍👍

Great job McLaren.
