Force India VJM04 - revised nose and front wing 21 May 2011
Force India have brought to Spain the new nose and front wing they introduced at the last round in Istanbul (main picture). Very different to the bulkier one used previously (right-hand inset), the new solution has a Red Bull-inspired nose section and features aero devices on its underside similar to those introduced by Williams two years ago and used by McLaren in 2010 and this year (left-hand inset). Other new components to look out for are the revised endplates and the three wing elements. In the end, however, the team opted to use the previous standard wing configuration for qualifying and the race. They also tested Red Bull-style exhausts on Friday, but again decided not to run the solution on Saturday and Sunday.
