SimraceWay – McLaren MP4-27 Released
With Simraceway’s McLaren Month over it sure doesn’t mean we won’t receive any new McLaren based content as Simraceway continues to impress by adding yet another amazing piece of McLaren machinery, the McLaren MP4-27.
The McLaren MP4-27 is now available to all for around $9.99. The McLaren MP4-27 carried the British team’s hopes for 2012, setting out to improve on the Constructors’ Championship runners-up spots achieved by the MP4-25 and MP4-26 .
Although not immediately obvious, the design of the MP4-27 diverged markedly from its predecessor. The most obvious change involved the scrapping of the pioneering U-shaped sidepods sported by the MP4-26â€”a change resulting from another newly-introduced regulation.
By the first race of the season, it was becoming obvious that the MP4-27 was more than just a pretty face, with Button and Hamilton taking first and third place. Three further podium finishes for the British pair in the next two races also suggested the future would be bright for McLaren in 2012.
