2012 McLaren MP4-27 Technical specifications

McLaren Mercedes launched their 2012 F1. Early this week, the team were quoted in Autosport for having a essential design that may see rivals inquiring its legality – attractive stuff and good to see a team going forceful with their design.

MP4-27 look like the 2011 machine, the team said the MP4-27 chassis has been substantially revised, with all major systems updated or redesigned for the new season. The most evident differences are tightly wasted rear bodywork and a revised cooling system. The U-shaped sidepods used last year have also been redesigned to adapt to the FIA’s new exhaust regulations.
