F1 » McLaren struggles with new diffuser


McLaren could run the British Grand Prix with its Valencia set-up after its 'blown diffuser' failed to produce the step forward anticipated.

the main problem here, seems to be that a car designed from the outset, to use an integrated f duct, is unable to satisfactorily add a blown duffuser. whereas, rbr, which was designed from outset, for a blown diffuser, is able to design a compatible f duct. there are two aerodynamic influences and in mclarens case, they are not complementary.

Yeah I'm good. Sober now. :p Wishfull thinking is what that was. I began to think the same but it became obvious "to me and a few others" THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG! This does not mean that after the fix they will not still be a threat though. That car is still fast and dependable without it so..... We shall see!!!

Go RBR!!! :)

And what have we not stopped hearing for the last few weeks in the build up to this race from the bbc and the english media? all we've heard about is how lewis and jenson are going to win the english grand prix, just perfectly demonstrates the arrogance of england and its media

@Alan.
Its just pure PR. Also, consider the fact that journalists contact drivers for interview, not vise versa. Ahead of British GP when guys are in there it is natural they are being interviewed quite a lot.

PS. McLaren - whatever you doing with upgrades - you are doing it wrong :P.
