Force India VJM01 - sidepod winglets development 22 July 2008

In addition to the extensive updates introduced by Force India at Silverstone, the team made some further changes ahead of the Hockenheim race. One of these revisions concerned the assembly of the winglets placed in front of the car's sidepods (see arrows). Instead of being connected to the sidepod chimneys, the new elements are separate and are connected at their lower edge to the sidepod and at their centre, with the help of an additional horizontal profile, to the rear-view mirrors. This solution minimizes drag and increases the stability of the winglets.
