Williams FW35 - revised front wing 06 October 2013

In Korea, Williams ran a new front wing with a simpler main plane. Rather than three arches next to the endplate, it featured just a single arch (lower red arrow) in line with the other cars on the grid. The team also had three options in terms of the flaps and cascade upper wings. This drawing shows the configuration used by Pastor Maldonado, with a new middle, upper flap, curved on the outside (upper red arrow) in a similar fashion to the Mercedes'. Its purpose is to better direct airflow to the outside of the front wheels.
