Toyota TF106 - B version

Monaco saw the introduction of Toyota's TF106B, a deeply revised version of the car that started the season, both mechanically and aerodynamically. One key change is to the front suspension geometry, aimed at improving the way the car works with its Bridgestone tyres (the team struggled to get them up to working temperature earlier in the season). The connecting point for the push rod link to the torsion bars and dampers inside the chassis is now much higher. This provides an increased damping rate and allows a slight reduction in camber angle. This allows the car to better exploit its tyres' potential, and improves its handling.
