McLaren MP4-20 - strengthened barge boards 19 March 2005

In Australia Kimi Raikkonen lost his right-hand barge board through contact with a kerb. So, for Sepang onwards, the mounting of this element on the front bottom edge of the sidepod has been strengthened, by increasing its width and adding layers of carbon fibre around it. Note also how the chimneys on the sidepod are increased in section due to the increased cooling needs at this track.
