Ferrari F2005 - strengthened barge-board links 06 May 2005

A small barge-board change for Barcelona, effecting both the large shields in front of the sidepods and the smaller ones at the front-axle level. With the former, the bottom of the sidepod has now been given a forward extension similar to that introduced by McLaren after Melbourne. The link between sidepod and barge board is now a sort of neutral wing profile, improving airflow management in this area, while also increasing the structure's strength.
