McLaren MP4-23 - front wing revisions 16 March 2008

A small, but interesting change in Melbourne relates to the outer extremities of the bridge wing. They now feature a wider chord section than before, as well as long slits (arrow) to help generate the kind of suction effect normally associated with a more conventional flap-main profile assembly. The change provides slighty more downforce, without having to alter the chord and the angle of the bridge wing. Expect to see this solution retained for Malaysia next weekend.
