Williams FW30 - additional rear flip-ups 19 July 2008

One a number of changes within a revised aero package that Williams tested at Hockenheim last week in preparation for the German Grand Prix is these updated flip-ups in front of the rear wheels. The vertical endplate is reduced in surface area and under the main flip-up there is now an additional smaller one, following a trend set by BMW Sauber at the start of the season. This doesn't increase downforce, but does dramatically reduce turbulence in front of the rotating rear wheels, making for much better aero efficiency.
