Williams FW28 - front wing development 14 July 2006

After the revisions in Canada, the front of the FW28 sported further changes in France. A single flap replaces the previous double design and the additional winglets over the main profile have increased in length, almost reaching the side of the nosecone. The endplates now feature mid-height horizontal winglets, similar to those seen on the McLaren, and an additional triangular fin has been added at the rearmost upper edge of the endplate, similar to that on the Ferrari. The endplate changes help reduce turbulence while also slightly increasing downforce at the wing's extremities.
