BMW Sauber F1.08 - front wing development 11 May 2008

Although only a small development, BMW's introduction of long vertical fences (yellow detail) under the F1.08's front wing is interesting to note and similar to a solution introduced in 2007. In addition a horizontal winglet has been placed on the rear section of the fence towards its upper edge. The fence splits the airflow passing near the upper flap, while the additional small winglet prevents the air from passing too close to the element thereby reducing drag and turbulence.
