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.

Car seemed very twitchy and unstable in FP1. not sure if it's setup or an aero issue with the updates. I don't think either driver got a clean lap in. Early days but a lot of work to do

The twitch Lando had on his first run on soft tyres was caused by change in wind direction as confirmed by team race feed.

More aero load to the inboard I think,
The older spec has a sleeker profile.
