BMW Sauber F1.06 - front wing 10 September 2006

Rather than just minimising their front wing design like many of the other teams in Monza, BMW Sauber adopted a completely new main profile. Gone is the usual sinuous shape and deep central spoon profile, replaced by an almost flat design, with the side sections bending only slightly downwards towards the centre. The change proved very effective in gaining extra top speed on the main straights - as proven by Robert Kubica's third place.
