McLaren: choice of mirror locations for Melbourne

As McLaren set the car up for first practice, they appear to have new pod wings complete with mirrors.  This is an aerodynamically benefical location for the mirror, McLAren have been late to try this set up out.  Drivers do say the rearwards visibility is compromised, although there is a FIA static test for the quality of the drivers rear view.  Both types of mirrors are mounted with infrared tyre temperature cameras, so we can expect to see the team to alternate between the options in free practice.
