2010 Ferrari F10 and McLaren MP4-25

The McLaren MP4-25 has been launched today.

So now we can see how it compares to arch-rival Ferrari’s 2010 car, the F10, which was launched yesterday.

Have a look at the two cars side-by-side in these pictures to see how two of F1’s powerhouse teams have tackled the 2010 regulations.

The different zooms used on the photographs makes it difficult to compare dimensions accurately, and makes the MP4-25 look much longer than the F10.

    It looks like a pull rod system on the mcmerc- I think I mentioned that on the first page of comments it’s a bit more visible if you look at the top down view, the linkage looks to go down from the wheel.

  2. They’d look much better if they were racing eachother… :S

    the cooling for the mclaren comes from the sharkfin at the back aswell as the sidepods, meaning they can run tiny sidepods
    tiny sidepods worked on the brawn last year.

    McLaren wheelbase looks longer than Ferrari’s. Does it mean it will struggle at low/mid speed circuits as Ferrari did last year?

    mclaren and ferrari were late to develope there cars for last seasonas thay were bateling for the title the season before, thay dont have that problem this season,so i see no reason why thay should’t be back to top form whith cars given the time needed to be back at the front. even though ferrari gave up developing last years car early, the mclaren still looks more developed, but looks dont cont for nothink,its raw pace that counts

  6. I really like these kinds of comparative posts.

    However, the cloak and dagger nature of F1 can be very frustrating to fans, although I know its all part of the game. As a long time fan I’m just curious to know what the designers have done and why they believe it will improve performance. I know a lot is a stake but I just wish they could at least respect the fans enough to put up a full spec new car for fans to appreciate. A lot will have changed before they line up on the grid anyway. What difference does it really make with all the teams spying on each other, as another team will have replicated and tested a new part they may have seen on another car within days…

    Ferrari was quicker then the mclaren on the first test…although it’s hard to know who had what fuel. Although the mclaren was more constant with the times ferrari was a bit up n down.

    Has anyone got any clue what ferrari had on top of there car, didnt know if its to do with aero or it was just a sencer thing???
