She's a personal trainer and fitness/bikini model named Jessica Renee. You can find her on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or her own website. I only know this because she was one of the first to post a photo of P1 last night which I neglected to share earlier because it's not such a great shot of the car. ;)

Looking at the rear wing/spoiler it seems to be in two parts. Wonder if there is some aero trickery with it doing two jobs, first as a spoiler and then as a down-force wing?

I can see two shut lines around the wing hence the question.

If someone could pm me the girls number I will call her and ask.

On those pictures it looks like 2 parts,but unless they have changed it its a one piece wing with a slot through the middle,although the wing does seem to have several postions when it is raised.
Oh,and she said the swipe was a turn on as well as the english accent,am i dreaming now ??

RIC - Most of your post seems like a windup :D ...but if that's a serious question about the wing let me know?

Also, why bother calling when you can Tweet - conversations are so much better 140 characters at a time. ;)

From what I've seen the wing is made of 2 pieces bolted together to allow for it to be a twin element wing.
That's how it was on the show car in Paris - this picture should make that fairly clear:

Interestingly, the car used in the initial press photos had a single piece wing.

the mules testing seem to have the same strut and wing design as the Paris concept;)

Really? OMG OMG OMG OMG I thought it was the same as the press photos one!

No but seriously, someone please get Captain Obvious his cape and boots....





That aside, it's interesting they changed it to 2 separate pieces on the show car, it's no doubt cheaper to make 2 pieces and bolt them together than to make that single piece (which would need quite the creative mold for the CF) but I thought this would be another 'no expense spared' showcase of McLaren tech?

Good spot Erik,i seem to remember the car i saw at the MTC only had the 1 piece slotted wing,that was 2 weeks before Paris,and a few days before the pictures were released,but there was too much to take in at the time,not knowing what to expect !!
