BMW Sauber F1.07 - rear wing development 15 June 2007

Introduced last weekend in Canada and retained for Indianapolis, this design features a new main profile, with its leading edge noticeably raised in its central section (yellow arrow) and its outer extremities bending downwards slightly. This assembly has been designed specifically for low to medium downforce tracks, and provides a perfect compromise for the two distinct sections of the Indianapolis track - the fast one, including the long straight, and the slow one, the twisting infield, where traction rather than top speed is paramount.
