McLaren MP4 -21 front -wing development 06 August 2006

A further development of the endplates, used only by Pedro de la Rosa in Hungary. The leading edge is completely vertical, losing the curves seen on the previous version. This model was specifically designed for this track, in order to provide a better front-end balance. However, Kimi Raikkonen preferred the feel of the earlier German Grand Prix version, so stuck with that - on a twisty track like the Hungaroring, a driver understandably goes with the option that gives him most confidence in the car's front-end behaviour.
