The New 2009 McLaren MP4-24 Formula 1 Car

January 17th, 2009

Update: The 2010 MP4-25 McLaren

McLaren unveiled the new 2009 Formula 1 car: the MP4-24.
The car looks quite different from the 2008 because of the numerous regulation changes that come into effect in 2009.

The rear wing just looks… well, ‘different’ than what we’re used to from last year. I must admit that the new F1 cars do take a while to get used to. They look like lower formula cars now – simpler and less sophisticated. 🙁 At least we’ve got slick tyres again!

One cool thing I do have to admit is that the new front wing is driver adjustable! Personally I think that’s pretty cool as it gives the drivers something more ‘to do’ – I am expecting some great wheel-to-wheel driving this year.

I thought the new integrated exhaust looks pretty stylish:

    My 6 year old son is so looking forward to the new 2009 season. He is a huge Lewis Hamilton fan and wants to be just like Lewis when he grows up.

    The new car looks slick. Here’s to a cracking start to the new season in March. Good luck to the whole team.

    the lack of trick little wings and other aerodynamics may slow the car down somewhat but those slicks really are gonna speed things up in the corners.
    looking foward to this year, my 4 year old boy and I will be watching.

    Sure is a funny looking car, So now F1 guys are running a F3000 car with more HP… Nice, this should be a strange year. Just keep it up Lewis and beat FIATarri….AGAIN..

    The car looks a bit different but it really doesn’t matter; because when you’re behind the wheel Lewis, it is truly a Beautiful thing to behold! In the ’08 and ’07 Seasons I witnessed some awesome racing. Your ability to control the car, especially in the Wet is Amazing, you are as one.
    Make it Another Year to Remember.
    Stay Focused and Fit and May God keep you safe!

  14. […] 2010 car look great. The MP4-25 looks relatively similar to last year’s MP4-24 car. Although this time round the car has a longer wheelbase due to the fuel tank volume increase, […]
