McLaren MP4-23 - front-wing development 22 June 2008

McLaren have introduced a deeply revised front wing in France. Underneath the main profile, two close vertical fences (1) have been added near the outer edge to divert airflow outwards, hence cleaning up the airflow beneath the profile's central section. In addition, the endplates (2) have been revised. Instead of the sculpted ones seen in Canada, they now feature a flatter, knife-edge profile, which has reduced the overall width of the wing profile and flaps. This new version of the wing is expected to be a permanent change, as the revisions are not only suitable for this track.
