McLaren MCL34

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.

I’m keen to see the Alfa, how low they’ll go. So far, Haas seem to have gone equally low as McLaren.

Also interesting to note is the fact that this was the second front-end solution the team tried this season with no success.
How do you know there was no success? Both ideas could have simply been for data collection so the team know where to move forward with future development. These revised uprights are clearly test items and not meant to be raced.

What are the chances that this is still a prototype and eventually it will be a carbon fiber piece of the whole brake/wheel assemply and used next year ?

Much like the solution Sport Pesa introduced earlier this year, down to the little fairings, just a litle bigger.

static balance
dynamic balance
