Williams FW28 - mid wing 30 September 2006

Another aero development for China is a new mid wing on top of the engine cover. It is new in that it is not horizontal, but instead slopes upwards. This makes it more efficient in that it generates a higher quality airflow to the rear of the car, with less turbulence. Being in the middle of the chassis, this device is genuinely helpful in improving the car's overall aero balance, without altering the loads at the front and rear.
