Toyota TF106 - wheel rim lip

An imaginative new feature for Europe.A carbon lip is applied to the outer face of the Toyota's rear wheel rims. The aim is to improve brake cooling - using similar principles to those seen on Ferrari's solution at the last round at Imola - while at the same time giving a minor aerodynamic gain by reducing turbulence near the rear wing. Unlike Ferrari's design, Toyota's does not extend to inside the wheel rim.
