"Gulf x McLaren Livery Nosebox"
Although it can be fitted in less than ten seconds, the nosebox of an F1 car is rather more than simply a carrier for the front wing. As the primary frontal impact structure, it is capable of dissipating vast amounts of energy to keep the driver safe in a front-on collision. The modern style is to mount the nose high, with the front wing slung underneath on pylons – all the better to channel air under the car. The MCL35M’s nosebox features a cape (like Batman) underneath, guiding airflow from the neutral section of the front wing out to the deflectors.
