McLaren Mercedes officially unveiled through its internet site their new F1 car for 2014, called MP4-29.
The British team hopes that the MP4-29will be more advanced in comparison to the previous year’s car, the MP4-28, which was a F1 car with several design errors.
2013 was probably the worst year for McLaren, in the sport since its establishment and with the MP4-29, the British team aims to make 2014 a better year.
The new car is painted in Silver and it is designed based on the new regulations that will apply in 2014 for the cars of F1. The MP4-29 also has a Garidan nose, like Williams.
The car that was presented, will naturally have many differences compared with the car that will appear in Jerez. Specifically there are already differences between the animation released by McLaren and the car itself.
Compared with last year, the F1 car features a push rod front suspension, more bulky sidepods, a redesigned muzzle to apply the new rules, the air flow formers over the sidepods, the vertical support post in the middle of the rear wing (which leaves a gap in between for the gas exhaust) and the separation in the air intake of the roll hoop.
