Williams FW28 - barge boards 07 May 2006

A development for Europe is this additional small barge board (right arrow) in front of the main one (left arrow), connected to the protruding horizontal turning vane in similar fashion to a solution used by BAR last year. The small board improves the aerodynamics in this area by diverting a small portion of the approaching airflow outwards, cleaning up the main central airflow, hence making it more effective in the way it passes it under the car and the way in which it cools the engine.
