2006 trends - double-profile front wing 13 December 2006

This concept, which adds significant downforce but minimal drag, was originally introduced the previous season by world champions Renault (right) at the 2005 San Marino Grand Prix. They continued its development into 2006, peaking at the German race. Its design concept was copied by Ferrari (top left) from the start of the season, with other teams then following the trend, BMW Sauber (bottom left) among them. Their latest version, introduced in Turkey, sported double profiles extending just halfway along the main profile.
