McLaren MCL35M

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.

Scarbs made an interesting comment… The side pods in the MCL35M are so narrow that without the barge boards, you can see the rear brake ducts!

That is awesome packaging around the radiators!

the FIA should have an open session for tech journalists like Scarbs to study all the cars in the paddock at Abu Dhabi given how little is likely to carry over to the new gen. Will be a goldmine of tricks!

All the teams will then have 'staff' tech journos. And good cameras
I disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it-

I'm sure that level of "espionage in plain sight" has happened a while ago. I specifically meant for journalists, so that you and I can learn about the various tricks and design elements employed, at close hand. Esp. since not much will be relevant for next year's car so there is probably not much to hide.

A cheap update would be a bonnet with smaller outlets because with this bonnet they drive at 25 C?

It's important to note that only the front of the sidepod is on the car. The whole sidepod would be wider
