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.

I don’t know, maybe you’re right. I guess we’ll have to wait and see tomorrow.

There's a few parts coming this week and next, not really one 'huge' package like you'd see before with new sidepods, etc.

According to the helmet reveal stream on Twitch from today (~07:00 mark), Lando confirmed a new front wing for the MCL35 at Silverstone. I wonder if this relates to why the floor tested at the Styrian GP was not raced.
wasn't it just a joke about the hand drawn car on his helmet?
I'm not sure if it was a joke or not either tbh

PhillipM you always have great intel. Do you know when the big package is coming? Lando was clear in his interviews this week that McL still has their big package to come vs. Ferrari/RBR/Renault that have already put theirs on, so McL can take the fight to them

That must be what Ivan referred to when he tweeted that he’d had a successful time in the wind tunnel and to look out for some interesting shapes in the next few races 8)

The upright connecting the bargeboard to the sidepod end fence is also different slightly 8)

There isn't one, floor/bargeboards/some slight wing tweaks this week, refinement work next week, week after there's a new diffuser to match the front end tweaks but nothing extraordinary.

Is this around the area you pointed out some flow separation earlier?
