McLaren MP4-24 - asymmetric sidepods 04 April 2009

For Sepang, McLaren have introduced asymmetric sidepods, the left one now housing the electronics box for the car's KERS system. This means that compared to the Melbourne design, the bodywork is more bulbous and wider in section at the rear. Note also the wider exhaust opening to evacuate more hot air in the higher temperatures of Malaysia.
