Red Bull RB4 - bridge wing modifications 21 June 2008

At the last round in Montreal Red Bull modified the RB4's bridge wing to prevent it from flexing, to comply with the latest FIA rule clarifications. For Magny-Cours, the team have revised the central section of this element (see inset). By increasing the depth of the bridge wing (red arrow), the team can boost downforce without altering the angle of the flap. In this way the car can still perform well at top speeds on the long straights, while at the same time have a sharper front end, better able to cope with the French track's twisty sections.
