McLaren 2011: different gear, still speeding :)

BERLIN - The new 2011 McLaren MP4-26.
McLaren Mercedes this morning brought together members of the public to construct and reveal its new chassis, the team’s challenger for the 2011 FIA Formula 1 World Championship. 
Revealed at Berlin’s Potsdamer Platz, the famous public space that sits on the fringe of the old Berlin Wall, the car was built up by fans and customers carrying components into the arena, where the new chassis was gradually pieced together in front of a huge crowd.
This culminated in our race drivers – 2008 world champion Lewis Hamilton and 2009 world champion Jenson Button – assembling the very final pieces to reveal the completed racecar.
Looking radically different from last year’s race-winning chassis, MP4-26 features a range of aerodynamic features designed to take advantage of new rules significantly limiting the amount of downforce that can be derived from the car’s underbody.
