BMW Sauber F1.06 - rear wing 09 September 2006

An interesting change for Italy is the rear wing's very particular main profile, which features an apex of sorts at its centre, with slight bends towards its extremities. Such a profile assures a reasonable amount of downforce (compared to the minimal amounts usually found as part of a Monza set-up), but is very efficient in terms of cutting turbulence and drag, as the airflow finds little resistance from the wing's side sections.
