BAR 007 - additional barge boards 20 March 2005

An evolution of BAR's barge board and turning vane concept for Malaysia. Previously the front-axle level barge boards were separated from the turning vanes in front of the sidepods. Now the two are connected by additional low, tiny barge board, similar to that seen on the Williams. The changes improve the airflow management underneath the car, and engine cooling, directing more air to the sidepod intakes.
