Mc Laren MP4/25 – Updated Chinese rear wing spec for Turkey


 

           The rear wing introduced at Turkey regained the pre-Spain main flap profile with the  leading edge  at the central section to be raised up so as to divert more air under the planes (drag and downforce reduction by this configuration ). Furthermore the second flap had its chord being lengthened  at its central section to gain some of the lost downforce  . Apart from the former mentioned,  the endplates slot-gills were also increased in number just like before the Spanish race  .

        Furthermore  the wide inlet in the middle of the main plane and the two more additional smaller ones on either sides were rejected and as a result of  it  the second plane  lost its additional slot at its rear surface  in favor of a single shorthened one . Finally there was a new blowing slot of reduced length of the F-duct system, placed lower.

           The new rear wing design is not “new”  for Mc laren as it was  extensively used during the past years time and it replaced the maximum downforce rear wing used at Monte Carlo . The new wing may produces less downforce but significantly less drag .
