Honda RA106 - revised rear wing 24 June 2006

An interesting change for Canada, which was tested extensively at Monza just prior to the race. The wing's dramatically curved main profile is much lower in the centre than at its extremities. This increases airflow pressure in the middle of the wing, while simultaneously improving airflow management either side, working in combination with the wing's sculpted endplates. These feature two slits, with the flap attached to the endplate in a similar fashion to that seen on the Renault. This solution appears ideal for Montreal, providing adequate downforce to the rear of the car, while also reducing drag over the side sections.
