McLaren MP4-26 - revised rear wing 10 July 2011

At Silverstone McLaren introduced a new rear wing that features a smaller chord for the flap, with the DRS activated by an electric motor like that used by Red Bull, Renault, Force India and - for Silverstone - Ferrari. However, a back-to-back comparison between the new and old designs on Jenson Button's car in practice convinced the team to drop the new version for qualifying and the race.
