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.

No side strakes. They keep taking them off and putting them on again...

Front wing on Lando's car looks somewhat different too. Does anyone have a closeup picture of it?

According to Tobi Grüner of AMuS, there’s a front wing upgrade on Lando’s car as well.

Some differences I could spot.

-Different Y250 generation.
-That "step" near the endplates is more pronounced. More flap angle the inner side of the "step".

From this angle it's difficult to see other things in comparison with the old FW. There may be other things that are difficult to spot in that picture.
