Red Bull RB4 - revised front bridge wing 24 August 2008

An interesting change to the RB4 in Valencia is the introduction of a curved upper link (inset) connecting the bridge wing to the top of the nosecone, as on the McLaren. This solution guarantees adequate stiffness in the bridge assembly, so that it doesn't obviously flex. It also helps to cut weight, by allowing the use of a smaller bridge element, rather than a larger, stiffer item.
