The new McLaren Mercedes mp4-19B !

Here is our new car that should help us to get back where we should be... AT THE TOP! The first race of the new mp4-19b is tomorrow on Sunday at the French GP. This beauty is in theory 1 sec faster than our current racer [:0] Lets hope the computer programs are right!!



========
basically it is not a complete new car, it is a much better version of the mp4-19, its an evolution if you want... It fro sure looks great and I hope it will be the car we all have been waiting for. So fare it proves to be very reliable and fast out of the box. So fare without being push to its limit its just as fast as the "old" McLaren.


Here are the major changes that should help us to make a comne back:

1. A new MB engine that is not more powerfull but as been completly changed in order to be reliable!

2. The rear suspensions are comlpetly new and so is the entire rear section of the car.

3. The engine as now more space to breath and the cooling system as been changed.

4. All the wings on the hood have been obtimized in order to provide more downfroce / better aerodynamics to the car.

5. Finally, the front nose has also been obtimized by the wind tunnel.


Lets hope that will be enough [:)]






























Kimi Raikkonen has already said that the car is much better than the original mp4-19. As for McLaren MB, they have said that the computers clearly show its a much better car but it will all have to be proven on the racetrack.

Looks like it drives a little better, but is still lacking the edge needed to win some serious races.

Spa: David Coulthard managed to finish in seventh position following an incident filled race for the driver. Michael Schumacher came in second; securing his seventh Formula One Driver’s Championship, and his Ferrari team-mate Rubens Barricello completed the podium coming in third.
Kimi is now seventh in the Drivers’ Championship ranking with 28 points, whilst David holds eighth position with 21. Team McLaren Mercedes is fifth in the Constructors’ ranking with 49 points.

Monza Lap 13: Kimi is forced to retire at the end of lap 13 as his engine had started to lose water pressure due to a leak, the engine failure was caused by a damaged right radiator.

This lead to disappointment obviously.if you recall there has been problems with the cooling of Kimi's car from what now seem like "the get go " of the season. Overall, this has been a bad time for his car's cooling system.

One of the driving questions is why D.C. does not say what the heck and go for it anyway despite his venues.

Kind Regards,
-M

It's pretty boring that Schumi always wins, is there some restricion for age or anything? Does McLaren or Ferrari now have more championchips over the years?

RE: The new McLaren Mercedes mp4-19B !

What is interesting is look up DTM and look whom was one of the top Mercedes DTM drivers back in the day......Schumacher.

From 1974 starting with E. Fittipaldi McLaren has won 11 Championship and thus far finished with Mika in 1999.

This is Schumacher’s seventh, and making it Ferrari’s 14th. Schumacher has made 23 Drivers’ titles, and makes the 11th for Ferrari.

Enjoy the China GP..............."And turn up the volume" as Varsha always says at each race.

The season is not over yet, we (West-McLaren) can still cause some havoc for them (Ferrari).


Kind Regards,
