New McLaren front wing almost brought Alonso in the points in Japan

McLaren endured another tough race in Japan last weekend, hampered by a lack of straight-line performance. They did at least, though, have the benefit of recent aero updates to the MP4-30, which narrowly missed out on the points in the hands of Fernando Alonso.

The team confirmed the effectiveness of the new front wing design they introduced in Singapore (previous version inset). The wing pillars have a more twisted outer edge (left arrow), while the endplate now features small winglets on its inner (top right arrow) and outer (lowermost arrow) edges, and a revised rear opening (lower right arrow). All this is to better manage the airflow around the outside of the front tyres.
