The Centreline Downwash Generating (CDG) Wing 26 October 2005

This mock-up shows what the FIA's CDG wing design would look like on a current Formula One car. The two-part wing, a result of aero research done by the sport's governing body in conjunction with technical partner AMD, is designed to promote overtaking by lessening airflow disruption immediately behind the car. Following cars would be able to get much closer before losing front downforce, hence making passing easier. The FIA hopes to introduce the wing in either 2007 or 2008, in conjunction with a return to wider, slick tyres.
