Honda RA106 - front-wing development 05 August 2006

Hungary sees Honda's sixth major front wing revision. As the illustration shows, it is very different from the previous design introduced at Magny-Cours, which has a very different layout to the Hungaroring. The wing now sports a much squarer central spoon profile coupled to a wider flap, to produce maximum downforce on the twisting Budapest track. Drag does inevitably increase slightly, but this is not a big issue due to the low terminal speeds here.
