Toyota TF106 - front barge boards

An interesting, if minor, aero development spotted on the Toyota in Australia was changes to the barge boards, which sported an additional inner fence in their foremost section. This creates a channel which more effectively diverts the lower portion of the airflow, increasing the efficiency of the bottom of the car. Quick direction changes dominate the Albert Park circuit and here the revisions resulted in better stability and improved grip.
