McLaren MCL34 speculation thread

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.

Would basically set them on par with 2018 Ferrari and Merc then. Though reports on engine gains are mostly meaningless..

It says: "34A-MO-00143311 / ZV464"
whoa, somebody actually did =D>

so does "34A" mean there's gonna be a 34B ? :mrgreen:
Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.

I wonder if McLaren have taken advantage of the advances in additive manufacturing processes, both of the companies it uses on the spec list have made strides in that area -
https://www.theengineer.co.uk/3d-printing-pioneers/
https://www.theengineer.co.uk/september ... s-roundup/

Interesting information contained in those links, beyond the small amount of additive manufacturing info.

I really hope the expression of the third guy on the right side does not sum up the car this year.
If i would get the money to start my own F1 team, i would revive Arrows

I would guess McLaren have just shown the team a preview of the Car before everyone else gets to see it tomorrow

Bold statements were being said, i just hope its not another PR stunt. Especially "hold my beer". If the car is not as good looking or fast, they will be verbally demolished right from the start.

I think everyone waiting is going to be pretty happy, major changes on the car around the sidepods and bargeboards.
