Honda RA108 - engine cover winglets 07 July 2008

During pre-season testing back in February, BMW Sauber added two profiled winglets to the F1.08's engine cover. At Silverstone Honda have adopted a similar solution, adding two centrally-positioned wide winglets (see circled area and arrow) to the RA108's engine cover in an effort to improve the car's balance. The solution has an additional benefit of reducing load transfers between the front and rear when the car accelerates or brakes.
