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.

I don’t think that’s the MCL34.

fan made I think it was,
maybe the fan has got insider knowledge? pure speculation :D
I found odd that McLaren had to comment on that pic...
and MCL34 seems to have this big oval air intake shape...

Finishing races is important, but racing is more important.

so pre-launch people say it looks outrageous?

Or is this just hype and hot air?

Well looking at their road cars, they look pretty outrageous to me.

I don't think its just hype. Something different is surely there. However those "papaya" members that were invited to the pre launch usually are not technically savy. Maybe its just the livery that is different... Maybe not.

They are Fans that are invited for a special Event. Of course they will be a little more on the euphoric side. So as always on the Internet, take it with a grain of Salt. And i'm not saying they are wrong or the Car will turn out a dud looks wise. All i'm saying is dont expect tooooo much.
