That's some big slots in the Floor. Otherwise, as expected, more or less a refined MCL 32.

I guess all the work is under the skin, as that sure is under-whelming

That roll hoop intake is tiny. Judging by what everyone else did, surely it's not the final spec?

Looks like a stegosaurus on top of the sidepods with all those turning vanes 😄
And that's the longest floor slits I've ever seen

That floor though!

Launch spec barge boards surely, compared to most they are embryonic.

How have they got away with the slits in the floor, I can’t see and cuts to the edge that would make it a continuos line

Too many details have been edited out in the pictures of the car through Photoshop?

The sidepods have a huge undercut but seem rather wide at the top, especially compared to other Renault-customer Red Bull. However some people posted on the forum that Renault it self and McLaren might have gone a bit more conservative with the engine cooling and indeed it looks to be that way.

The front wing is more or less the latest iteration of de MCL32 front wing. The barge board area also seems quite similar to the latest iterations. I guess they want mileage at testing (very understandable) and will bolt on the new bits in the second week of testing.
