BMW F1.07 - additional rear winglet 06 October 2007

In China BMW have added a small winglet suspended under the main curved flip-ups in front of the rear wheels, following the fashion introduced by Ferrari few races ago. These elements help in terms of reducing turbulence around the inner edge of the wheels and the rear bodywork close to them. This in turn noticeably aids the efficiency of the side sections of the rear diffuser, their air extraction being increased as a result.
