McLaren MP4-27 - differing driver set-ups 02 September 2012

In Belgium the McLaren drivers chose different rear wings. Button stayed with the new, low-downforce wing introduced for Spa, while Hamilton - to sort handling problems in the slow sector - chose the higher downforce one shown here. It's the same design the team used until the last round in Budapest, but of course with a lower incidence angle on the flap.
