Honda RA106 - front wing comparison 01 July 2006

Honda have tried two configurations at Indianapolis, a low-downforce one giving more straight-line speed on the main straight, and a high-downforce one providing more grip in the twisty infield section. The low-downforce version features a deep but smooth curved spoon profile at its centre, together with a flap with a reduced cross section and without any kind of gurney tab. The high-downforce version sports a squared deep spoon profile and a wider cross section to its flap, which also has two small gurney tabs at its extremities.
