McLaren Front Wing Movement

As the Rock says, "Finally!"

Here is a video showing a bit of a flexible front wing shown on the MP4-26 at Valencia. Though it seems to not have helped them a whole lot, hopefully they can wring in this tech and extract out the performance.

Here is a video showing it I found off Scarbsf1.

Let me clarify alittle. The wing wasn't actually moving up and down verticly. What moved was the rear fin of the verticle support beams that hold the wing up.

This doesn't look to be an exact replica of Red Bull's method which provides additional downforce. This solution is more of a aero balancing method.

I might have been a bit overzealous when I read the first bits of the article. But still, it is improvement in a deflecting aero peice which is what needed to happen to compete.
