McLaren MP4-24 - revised rear diffuser/aero package 12 July 2009

McLaren introduced what more or less amounts to a 'B version' of the MP4-24 in Germany, with a new front wing, new side pods, new engine cover, new floor (the V-shaped cut-in in front of the rear tyres has gone) and a new rear diffuser, shown here, with a much wider, asymmetric central channel. The car improved by around eight-tenths of a second with the new package - so far only available to Lewis Hamilton. Team mate Heikki Kovalainen has just the new front wing at the Nurburgring.
