Renault R28 - front bridge wing 05 February 2008

In comparison to its predecessor, the new Renault's nosecone has been dramatically lowered and now features an additional bridge profile (top arrow). While the front of the chassis has been minimised, the surface area of the wing's main profile has been increased. In addition the pillars (bottom arrow), which connect the nose to this profile, have been dramatically inclined to an almost horizontal position to reduce drag and improve the quality of airflow passing over and underneath the front of the car.
