Honda RA106 - revised front wing 23 April 2006

An interesting change for San Marino. The base of the spoon at the centre of the main profile is flat. The profile then tapers sharply upwards away from the nosecone before flattening out. There is then an additional upward step before it flattens again as it joins the endplate. This design has evolved from a previous version seen last year in Japan, where the wave-like main profile formed part of a double-decker layout. This latest solution is intended to cut drag at the relatively high-speed Imola circuit.
