Ferrari F2012 - new front wing 07 July 2012
Ferrari introduced a new front wing at Silverstone on Friday. The new endplate (see main drawing) is particularly different from its previous incarnation (see inset). The shape is much more sophisticated and features four vertical gills instead of the usual three. However, when driver Fernando Alonso damaged one of the new front wings during his Practice Two crash, the team decided to revert back to the older solution for qualifying and the race.
