McLaren short nose passes crash test

McLaren has put its major upgrade for the Austrian grand prix back on track.

We reported last week that a much-needed aerodynamic package for the MP4-30 car was in doubt because the centrepiece - a Mercedes-like 'short nose' - had repeatedly failed the mandatory FIA crash tests.

A spokesman had told us: "We are confident that our new nose box will pass its crash test in the near future."

Indeed, late last Friday the Woking based team announced on Twitter: "We can confirm that the new MP4-30 nose box has passed the FIA crash test and will be available to use from the Austrian GP."
