The car also has the new for 2008 higher headrests arround the drivers head and also has the new standard McLaren Electronic Systems ECU that prevents the car having driver aids.

Changes In Aerodynamics

The team have also moved the rear view mirrors outboard, like Ferarri and Renault.
The TF108 has also had a major focus on cleaning the air flow arround the front suspension as well, maximising the Zero Keel concept of the front suspension.
