McLaren MCL35

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.

Hello Daniel. Thank you very much for your words. The numbers tell us that much better than the MCL34, so hopeful that it is a good base with which to be able to go on giving enough war.
Ivan also this on Twitter: Many thanks! On paper, it's quite a bit faster than the MCL34.
Q: (Stefano Mancini – La Stampa) Kimi, will you help Vettel to win his championship this year?
Kimi Raikkonen: I can only drive one car, obviously.

Crash test Regulation for the nose are different since 2014, the solid part of the nose must begin 5cm behind the tip. But a glue on is of Course possible. The whole car is costructed with glue. :wink:

The engines all across the field sound so much better in comparison to how they sounded when the hybrid era started!

And for those saying the car is 'fat' at the rear...take a good look at that video and the light shining through the car from the other side as it exits the garage:

You can see the undercut much better in person or in the video. I'm not saying it's the slimmest car on the grid but fat it certainly isn't.

@_cerber1, do you know if @TheBestF1.es are reliable, regarding sources or info? They’re the second outlet reporting the introduction of the S-duct on the MCL35 for winter testing. Perhaps they’re just lifting that from Piola’s article on Motorsport.com?

I think when people mistakingly think the car is ‘fat’ it is because of the width of the engine cover outlet, which lets be honest is wide (and ‘odd’ looking In release renders), which is even more exaggerated because of just how small the side pods really are

Does this clip give us the best look at the new bargeboard area so far, are are there higher res images available?

About half second on from that shot you get a real view of how extreme that undercut is. Will be interesting to see what that equates to on the track.
