McLaren MP4-29 - revised nose

02 Nov 2014

On Friday in the United States McLaren tested the modified nose seen here on the right (standard version on left).

The central finger section features an additional lightweight fairing underneath (red arrow), which is bonded to the bodywork and hence does not require any new crash tests. This was clearly not an experiment for 2015, since the McLaren-style 'anteater' noses will be forbidden under revised regulations in this area for next season.
