Ferrari F2007 - Barge boards, winglets and sidepods 29 January 2007

Although the F2007's sidepods feature larger radiators, the slightly smaller air inlets and the steeper angle of the radiators have reduced the width of the car's cross-section. The barge boards (2) have also been heavily refined and now sport a more sculpted, serrated profile. Two small vertical fins have been added at the front to divert and adjust the airflow around the lower section of the sidepods. The winglets (3) in front of the sidepods have been narrowed at the top and feature wider vertical shields. This development is designed to work in conjunction with the winglets behind the cooling chimneys (top right). The rear end of the F2007 is visibly narrower and lower than its predecessor, improving the efficiency of the rear wing.
