Ferrari F2007 - cockpit winglets 29 June 2007

During last week's Silverstone test Ferrari introduced new winglets in front of the F2007's cockpit, placed either side of the chassis. Resembling similar winglets on the Renault and McLaren, these small additions better divert airflow around the cockpit and, more importantly, improve the quality of airflow directed towards the sidepod inlets, thus aiding cooling. They also allow the team to run more radical front wing angles, which without the new winglets would cause too much disruption to the airflow to the sidepods.
