Mclaren Mercedes goes Green

Amid continuing speculation the car is not behaving as expected, Mclaren engineers have come up with a novel idea to analyze air flow in critical areas without resorting to a wind tunnel: they smeared green paint on the leading edges of the sidepods!
With Norbert Haug admitting to BILD that "...We are certainly not where we want to be.." and Kovalainnen 1.6 seconds off the pace in testing at Barcellona, is this a clever way to get around wind tunnel testing restrictions or a sign of desperation?

All speculation will be resolved in Melbourne in two weeks time an don't forget that with the testing cuts this season, Mclaren might just be testing solutions for different tracks than everyone else.

And here is the rest of it.
