McLaren MP4-29 - new front wing

24 Nov 2014

McLaren introduced a new aero package on Kevin Magnussen's car in Abu Dhabi, including a front wing by the team's new designer Peter Prodromou, its totally different concept inspired by that of his former employers Red Bull.

The new wing (top drawing) differs from the standard McLaren family in all details, from the main plane, through to the other wing sections and the cascade flaps. The small vertical fences under the wing profiles are also different, as is the endplate, which - like on the Red Bull - is less complex with a straighter shape.
