Red Bull RB6 - revised front wing 10 July 2010

Red Bull introduced a heavily-revised front wing at Silverstone, though only Vettel got to qualify and race with it. A new camera position in the centre of the wing (1) helps produce more downforce there, allowing the team to reduce the main wing angle, hence cutting drag. The design also features a new flap adjustment (2), two vertical slots (previously one) in the endplates and a revised main profile. The overall effect of the changes is improved airflow to the leading edge of the sidepods, which in turn means the diffuser can work more efficiently and produce greater downforce.
