Honda RA107 - front wing 16 June 2007
Like a lot of teams, Honda have biased their Indianapolis set-up in favour of the fast section of the track, focussing on high top speed down the long straight with the result that the drivers must make do with a less-than-ideal low-downforce set-up through the tight infield section. This front wing, with a very small flap (blue arrow) featuring a much-reduced chord, is part of that set-up. The speed advantages are clear, but the car did indeed seem nervous in the infield, struggling for traction out of slow corners. The team hope to gain competitiveness with a heavily-revised RA107, expected to debut in the forthcoming European races.
