Toyota TF106 - wheel rim lip 05 May 2006

An imaginative new feature for Europe.A carbon lip is applied to the outer face of the Toyota's rear wheel rims. The aim is to improve brake cooling - using similar principles to those seen on Ferrari's solution at the last round at Imola - while at the same time giving a minor aerodynamic gain by reducing turbulence near the rear wing. Unlike Ferrari's design, Toyota's does not extend to inside the wheel rim.
