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.

Yes, and the whole back part is in paint, it's interesting to see what's there.

That looks a little bit crude... Wondering if they were just there to mount something else? Didn’t spot them in the team’s pictures of the cars.

Are they a temporary bracket for an aero measuring device?

No, Monza is not a test track.

You are correct. Motorsport's caption was not loaded for me at the time I posted the photo, added it now.
