Mclaren Mercedes MP4-25

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, they introduced it after about 3 races last year.

Forty-two that is def the forward facing camera used for the promo filming at Jerez. Take a look at the MP4/25 in action video on the new Mclaren site http://mclaren.com/home (halfway down)
You can see the the camera above the head is also a non fia spec camera. They are both temporary hence the bodge/speed tape to hold the cable down.

Can't you create a seperate thread for livery as well!
Well, what about a thread for piston number 3 and another for the brake pedal? If we can write 360 posts about an alleged switch that has no pictures that I know... Three... hundred... and... sixty (and counting!).

You have removed a technical discussions about an innovation that has not been seen before on a F1 car, why? Isn't a discussions about what colour paint or logo has been applied something that should be in a separate thread give the nature of the forum and website; F1 Technical.

Remind me just how technical a new sponsors logo on the side of a car is?

Who's driving? That'll answer your question. As well as the ducts on the top/front of the sidepods.

And I must praise your excellent word usage and spelling.

pretty sure they are the 25 side pods.

The Mclaren swoop thing on the what must be the release buttons for the bit that goes in after the driver is a nice touch!

That's an MP4-24 there...Look at the airbox base shape above the driver's head,front wheel covers and a rather simple front wing...Clearly a show purpose last years car.
