Looks like they have two carbon plates under the rear wing element.
Button's name was on the air intake too...
McLaren unveils its 2012 F1 challenger at Woking
McLaren launched its 2012 challenger on Wednesday as the Woking team took the wraps off the MP4-27 with which it is aiming to return to championship-winning ways.
The Mercedes-powered team finished in second place in the standings last year, scoring six victories with Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button.
McLaren was unable to present a championship challenge, however, as rival Red Bull Racing was the dominant force throughout the season.
With the MP4-27, the team is aiming to put an end to Red Bull's run after having secured all the titles for the past two years.
"I'm very excited," said Button, runner-up in last year's championships, during the launch. "This is the moment we see how hard we have all been working. It's a very exciting day.
"These guys have been flat out since we finished racing in 2011 on improving the car as much as they could in the simulator and I'm looking forward to getting out in it at Jerez.
"I am sure everyone is apprehensive when you start testing and I cannot wait to jump in the car."
Hamilton added: "I think it is fantastic. It's great to be here after a great winter. Seeing hard work going into building this car is inspiring. It is most refined-looking car we have had for some time so we are looking forward to getting back in it."
Interesting bargeboard arrangement...
Is that the exhaust coming out of the back of the sidepod?
Looks like it, looking at this angle... you can definitely see the opening of an exhaust pipe in the same spot.
Im sure the regulation changes stated the exhaust must exit at the rear of the car with the exit pipe being level with the back of the rear wing?
Looks like they have connected the slow plough right to the front wing. interesting.
I thought the new regulations stated that the exhausts had to be a certain height between the rain light and rear wing element?
god these exhausts are ugly
nose looks pretty decent comparing to caterham. are you watching Mike?
Leave it to the FIA to be too daft to make their point clear and the engineers to exploit that. At least the ones more imaginative that Caterham's who were more interested in making the new rules fit last year's model.
If you read the regulations on the Formula 1 site and look at the diagrams, I would say that those exhausts are illegal.
Looking at the video, I'm not sure that is the exhaust. There is a hole on the top of the side pod that i think is the exhaust ports and not the side facing structures.
that nose looks really nice!
Dat ass doesn't..
