Super Aguri SA07 - rear-wing development 07 July 2007

This design was tested at the Silverstone test prior to the British Grand Prix. It sports completely revised endplates, which feature a totally flat top edge (upper arrow) and a narrow upper section at the front, the lower edge of which is clearly visible above the top of the wheel (lower arrow). The design might look old-fashioned, but actually cuts drag thanks to the smaller front section and better management of the airflow exiting the upper wing profile and flap. This configuration is particularly efficient on medium-to-fast tracks such as Silverstone and improves the rear stability and overall balance of the car.
