BMW Sauber F1.06 - front wing development 27 August 2006

Further modifications for Turkey as part of the ongoing development on the F1.06. The main profile is different, with a deeply rounded central spoon. The top edge of the endplate has changed too - it no longer slopes continuously downwards, but instead has a sharp cut with a vertical edge in the middle, just at the level where the rear edge of the upper profile connects. These changes improve the sharpness of the front end of the car, and slightly increase downforce, as part the mid-level downforce configuration used in Istanbul.
