McLaren MP4-24 - revised diffuser design 25 April 2009

For Bahrain, McLaren have kept their diffuser from China. An update of the Australia/Malaysia design, it is more than just a double-deck version, with a small additional flap (red arrow) designed to improve the efficiency of the central section. In the heat of Sakhir, the MP4-24 is running with wider bodywork on both sidepods (not just on the left as was seen at Sepang) but retaining the asymmetric solution for the exhaust exits (narrow on the right, wide on the left).
