Williams FW 27 - front wing 09 September 2005

The front wing has been one of the more frequently modified elements on the FW27 this season. For Spa (and Monza), a sort of hybrid solution incorporating endplates completely straight in their profile and deprived of the usual side winglet (right arrow). This is because both tracks sport long straights where top speed is paramount. The difference for Spa is the double flap (left arrows), adopted so as to have enough downforce - and hence grip - in the slower corners of the Belgian track, considered by many to be the most complete driver's circuit.
