Toyota TF106 - new front aero package

These updates are all due to debut in Bahrain. The front wing has revised endplates with an additional side fin (1). On the inner edge of the endplate is another smaller horizontal fin (2), mounted slightly lower than the extra T-winglet (3) on the main profile. Curved winglets (4) on either side of the bottom end of the nosecone act as a splitter for airflow passing through the front wing flap and also increase efficiency of the lowermost section of the chassis close to the sidepods. The fins at the top of the nose cone (5) are still present. These aid airflow management to the rear of the car and also help improve front-end balance.
