Brawn BGP001 - vertical sidepod fins 22 August 2009

Quite a modified car from Brawn in Valencia, starting from the front wing (based on the one used in Hungary) and going back as far as the engine cover and rear wing. However, the most notable aspect is the adoption for the first time of these vertical fins in front of the side pods. A solution used by nearly all the other teams, these help to direct the airflow more effectively to the back of the car and the central section of the rear diffuser.
