    I’ve just noticed something. The back wing doesn’t have a sponser, surley thats one of the most veiwed areas in f1, sometimes one of the most iconic.

    Sureley they’ll find someone willing to print a name for cash on what is likely to be a race winning rearwing.

  2. It looks like last year’s Renault.

  3. Oh, sex on wheels!!! What a beautiful car. I wish mine looked like that. I know no boot or cd/radio but WOW!!!!!

  4. The most radical design car since the Williams of 2004!

    I dont think they know if they will really run the shark fin.. I dont think an area that large goes blank on a high profile teams car. They have all the space back there for the merc logo and look where it ended up..its as if they placed the logos for a more traditional airbox/engine cover.

    People are deceived by MP4-25 paint job. The car itself looks rather hideous. “Silver Arrow” only belongs to Merc and they better change it next year.

    This is a very interesting design. Whitmarsh wasn’t kidding when he said it was.

    I think it’s interesting that they covered the rear diffuser area. Macca is making big deal about the fact that they have an “extreme solution” for the diffuser, so they probably think they have something that will give them an advantage and don’t want to reveal it.

    Someone mentioned the bits under the front wing. I find this part interesting; they look like “front” diffusers, if you will. This could be a very advantageous thing to have on the car that could correct for some of the rule changes pushing the car in a direction taking away front grip and pushing the grip balance toward the rear.

    Whereas Ferrari look like they’ve copied the Red Bull nose, McLaren look to me like they’ve taken Brawn’s front nose and raised it.

    1st of all I am a Mclaren fan.. And I became a fan because of all the beautifull cars they always created.. But I must say this is the most uglyest silver truck I have ever seen.. The engine cover looks like a giant piece of nothingness.. And yes the car actually look slow.. So we will have to see on monday if this car is fast & innovative or just plain ugly & slow.. Good luck Mclaren ; )

    Now I see that exhaust are directed towards the back, not laterally as it appeared. Thnaks for this great pictures.

  12. that is one ugly looking car

  13. Has any1 taken a look at the joining end of the fin? It is not straight but rather zig-zag finely covered with the red paint …… only God knows what that supposed to entail :)

  14. This car looks sick

    Team Britian has launched. (Clearly I’m ignoring the minor factor of the engine)
