Williams FW30 - revised front bridge wing 12 May 2008

Introduced in Turkey, this solution is an evolution of the aero package debuted at the last round in Barcelona. The upper profile of the wing is now divided into three sections by means of two small vertical fences. These allow a slight increase in the profile depth of the two outermost sections of the wing (inset), producing more downforce without having to increase the flap angle (and hence drag). It's particularly effective on a track like Istanbul Park, which requires strong top-speed performance on the long straights, but also sharp front-end handling in the circuit's twistier sections, including the notorious Turn Eight.
