F1 Podcast: Are new Mercedes or McLaren cars Red Bull-beaters?

1 min read

The biggest day of 2024 launch season, with both Mercedes and McLaren revealing their cars, is tackled in the latest episode of The Race F1 Podcast.

Gary Anderson and Mark Hughes join Edd Straw to run the rule of the Mercedes W15 and the McLaren MCL38 and ask if one, or both, could threaten Red Bull this year.

We take a close look at the major architectural changes to the Mercedes compared to last year and how it's hoped that will unlock significantly more performance potential.

There's also a close look at its distinctive front wing design and the approach it has taken to sidepod design.

McLaren's largely evolutionary car is also evaluated, including a look at the change it has made in the approach to the cooling inlets in the sidepods.
