BMW F1.08 - front wing assembly 01 February 2008

It is interesting to note how all teams have transformed the front of their 2008 cars. To reduce drag generated by the pillars which connect the nose to the front wing, BMW Sauber(right) have adopted a similar solution to the one introduced by McLaren on the MP4-22 last year (left). Instead of connecting the pillars to the main profile, they are attached to the middle flap, thus reducing drag and improving the front wing's efficiency.
