McLaren's 2011 car will feature "quite a few" technical innovations, team boss Martin Whitmarsh has promised.

This season, the British team pioneered the F-duct innovation, but it - as well as double diffusers - has been banned for 2011.

Talking about next year, Whitmarsh told Auto Motor und Sport: ""We will definitely see new and surprising concepts such as the F-duct and double diffuser.

"We've got quite a few creative ideas already. I hope it pays off."
