McLaren MP4-23 - front suspension 11 January 2008

The changes made to the car's front suspension are particularly interesting. As on the Ferrari F2008, the front of the chassis now higher than that of its predecessor, hence the quantity of airflow passing underneath the car has been dramatically increased. As a result, the team have angled the lower wishbone (2) downwards and increased the number of small sculpted winglets (1) underneath in order to manage the airflow more efficiently.
