Monaco set-up - increased steering angles 16 May 2005

Negotiating Monaco's tight confines requires greater steering angles (2) than normal (1). To allow for this, the front suspension is modified, cutting into the wishbones (yellow) to stop the wheel rims touching them. To compensate, additional carbon-fibre reinforcements keep the structure solid and ensure it withstands the huge stresses caused by the bumps and accelerative and braking forces.
