Renault R27 - front wing 18 June 2007

At Indy the R27 sported a new front wing, especially conceived for the low-downforce configuration needed at this circuit. Gone are the additional curved upper profiles (see detail circle) used as part of the medium to high-downforce set-up seen at previous races this year. This design obviously favours the high-speed section of the track and the tradeoff is reduced sharpness and front-end grip in slow corners. It seemed to work, as seen from Renault's improved performance in the US.
