I dont like that new wing. I think it looks ugly, but I hope it will help McLaren to beat Ferrari
What do you think about that wing?

The new wing is not connected to the body so it may flex... :?:

:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:
wow it's a new mclaren innovation!!!
i hope it will be the thing that moves them ahead of ferrari :cheesy: :mrgreen:
it really is different and it shows that mclaren will continue to develop all season
...wow this is just revolutionary!!

(although i do agree that it doesn't look as good with the wing on...but this is f1 racing not f1 beauty show so i don't care if mclaren is the ugliest car :P)

well the wing is not flat, it's kind of curved, so i don't think it will flex that easily :P but we'll see, i don't think mclaren would make a bendy wing after they told fia about the flex floors :D

Big gap betwen Ferrari and McLaren. I expect that FA will be much closer to Ferraris.
