Williams FW26 - front wing endplates 26 September 2004

A change to the inner, knife-edge profile at the bottom of the endplates. Rather than running parallel to the ground it bends downwards, forming a wider venturi channel which provides additional downforce and reduces turbulence around the front wheels. Similar solutions will be important in 2005, when front wings must be higher and hence naturally less efficient.
