Ferrari 248 F1 - revised front wing 24 June 2006

Part of an extensive aero development for Canada is this front wing, featuring a completely different flap, which guarantees an adequate downforce level (very useful in the twisty section of the track characterised by a sequence of almost continuous corners), while also reducing drag - very useful on the very long straight prior to the start-finish one. To reach this target the new flap has been reduced in area, but maintains a curved profile. The downforce level should be roughly six percent less than the previous solution, perfectly adequate for this track.
