Ferrari 150° Italia - new front wing 07 May 2011

In Turkey, both Ferrari drivers have been using the new front wing tested only briefly by Fernando Alonso in Shangai. It's different from the previous one in all areas. Totally new is the endplate, with the lower part (1) cut as it was on last year's F10. The main profile is shaped differently in the area beside the endplate (2) and the endplate itself is now thinner and more curved towards the outside (3). The flap is divided into two sections which have different profiles (4 & 5), while the central pillars (6) now converge towards the rear of the nose. Finally there is a new adjustment mechanism (7) for the flap's incidence angle, similar to that used by most other teams.
