- Longer wheelbase
- no rake
- Small side air intakes
- Nose looks like 2018 (after Barcelona)

The actual car in the presentation looked much more developed especially the front wing, when compared to the posted render images above. Interesting solution with the baseboards and quite neat RW, cant wait to see what will come Monday onward's

Different FW in the launch event. The launch event one looked more radical

I don't think any other car launched so far looks so uncluttered. Very clean.

Yeah car in studio was much more representative, McLaren clearly making it hard for others to see bits? the front suspension mount pick up points are different to the digital render also.

The actual fw had much more curvature in the main plate area....almost pre 2009 like...
What do you think about undernose area...it looks almost entirely closed.

Looks like they went the Red Bull route with the side pods. They retained their front nose concept.
