Red Bull RB3 - front wing development 11 May 2007

Barcelona is very demanding aerodynamically, hence the teams test a lot here and Red Bull, like many others, are debuting major aero modifications. Changes to the RB3 are extensive, with sidepod revisions and this new front wing, which for the first time sports an additional upper profile (red arrow) on each side, a feature seen on many other cars. The new profiles are highly curved, not dissimilar to those on the Williams and Renault. The change provides a significant increase in front downforce, without noticeably raising drag.
