McLaren MCL33

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.

Interesting article.
Other pages on the article involving other cars are interesting also.

Nice angle of engine cover and halo mounting points. Curvy indeed.

Also, open in new link for larger version.

There's not much point going too skinny on the wings if a lot of your current parasitic drag is in the internals.

Do we have confirmation of that?

All I've heard Eric say was that it wasn't as easy as "Just take it off". So I guess, it could be internal or it could be 100 other things.
