Toyota TF106B - sculpted mid wings 26 August 2006

After the triple mid wing seen in Hungary, Toyota move to a double for the lower downforce requirements of Turkey. Viewed from above, you can see the sinuous shape of the front mid wing bending rearwards, while the rear one features a delta shape, reminiscent of the wings of the famous Concorde plane. Such intricate detailing of these elements shows just how important they are in managing airflow directed towards the rear of the car. They improve stability and increase the load generated by the rear wing.
