Jenson Button has revealed that the McLaren MP4-28 will look very different when it hits the track on Friday during practice for the Spanish Grand Prix.

The struggling outfit will introduce a host of upgrades which it hopes will move it closer to its rivals following a disappointing start to the 2013 season.

Whilst Button is taking a cautious approach to the changes, he revealed that they will change the cars appearance quite dramatically.

"There is a lot that is different, you will be able to see the [new] aerodynamics of the car and you will understand the difference in airflow of the car," he is quoted as saying by Autosport.

"It is still the same colour, but the edges have changed," he added.

"There are some really cool-looking little bits on the car but I don't think it is going to be enough to fight right at the front.

"We will see an improvement and hopefully that will help us understand the airflow of the car a little bit better."
