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 don't think the gurney was on the original wing, but I can't see much else different.
We still might see someting Friday or Saturday ...
I meant just on the wing as he was talking about, we knoe there's some new parts coming on the rest of the car this weekend.

They finally saw the light and removed that stupid plate on the barge board and replaced it with another chicken wing.

They haven't really got rid of it, they've just brought the multi-foil turning board forward and made it more extreme to do the same job - you can see the shape has changed right from front to rear. The leading edge of the floor seems to have changed slightly too so that may be the new floor already.
They're definately turning the flow out much earlier and more aggressively behind the front wheels now.

The gap between the barge board and that vertical device on the chicken wing is smaller.

When the last bargeboard update was added and flowvis pictures was there, someone in here mentioned there was still som gains to be had as there was some separation, seem that person was spot on as itd exactly that area that has changed 👍 now

I've been speaking ill of that plate since they had it on the car back in 2017.

Maybe this is the heavier modular version of the floor where barge boards can be swapped rapidly. And a fixed, lighter version will be used for Germany?

Could be, you can see there's some epoxy fill where they've been altering things.

That's the old midwing/Bargeboards but those 4 triangles folded back under "Estrella" is new... Good catch.

First Mercedes then Red Bull, now McLaren.

I know, just a coincidence, so I'm joking but they should hire me, as they seem to have focused on areas I've emphasized around here.
