McLaren-Red Bull front-wing comparison

24 Nov 2014

The new front wing (left) debuted by McLaren in Abu Dhabi and designed by Peter Prodromou, formerly of Red Bull, features endplates very similar to those on the latter team's RB10 (top right). They are much simpler and straighter than those on the standard MP4-29 wing (bottom right). Note the four slots in the lower section of the new endplate, designed to direct the airflow to the outside of the front tyres.
