I could be wrong but the regs allow you to do these kinds of hole and radii at the outer 50mm of the floor. That freedom has been in place for years, but i suppose no one explored it, or if it was explored wasn't done in a way that had beneficial results so was not pursued.
Just pure aerodynamics. Let the suspension designers sort their own problems out seems to be the philosophy here.Redragon wrote: ↑Sat Feb 24, 2018 8:17 pmInteresting this bulks on the top of the rear suspension, it seems to be working to assist the flow on rear wing
Could they get higher over the tests or season? Defenitely not sensors as they are on the launch pictures.

Imo, there's a lot to come with this car. This would not be the first time Macca has launched a car that didn't resemble the actual race fit car in critical areas (remember the coanda launch appearance?) I expect more at testing, and more first race. Macca car development is always top notch, top notch!
The car looks spectacular on the tarmac, really. Well done McLaren. I hope Fred has a solid shot at winning races with this car, he and the team certainly deserve it. #DareToDream
