Ferrari F2007 - front wing development 20 July 2007

This wing made its debut back in Canada, but has been continuously developed since then in terms of new flaps and the main profile. The change here at the Nurburgring is the much lower and deeper central spoon profile (yellow detail), which has a very specific effect - it helps the front wing to stall more easily on the circuit's straights, dramatically reducing drag, hence increasing top speed. Furthermore, it also aids the stalling of the diffuser by depriving the diffuser's central section of a large quantity of air.
