McLaren believe in their MCL35 they have a car that addresses a general weaknesses found in F1’s midfield as they look to hold onto best of the rest in 2020.
The Woking team unveiled its 2020 challenger, the MCL35, at the McLaren Technology Centre on Thursday.
The car, which is the first spearheaded by tech chief James Key, is an evolution of last year’s but incorporates reshaped sidepods, a thinner nose and tighter rear.
The MCL35 also has a redesigned airbox while McLaren have changed the suspension.
“You have to to have a target to work to, because you kind of need to figure out where you need to be,” Key told Motorsport.com.
