Ferrari F2007 - front rim shield Gurney tab 24 August 2007

Introduced in Hungary and retained for Turkey, a thin Gurney tab (blue arrows) has been applied to the top half of the shields. The tab has a slightly curved side profile, wider at the extremities and narrower at the centre, so as to split the airflow in this area in two. This reduces the turbulence generated by the inner portion of the shields and helps with hot-air extraction via the diagonal vent in the lower section (red arrow).
