Ferrari F2005 - front wing changes 26 August 2005

At Monza where speeds are high, drag is the enemy. To reduce it, teams tend to use narrower wing flaps. Ferrari have gone so far as to remove the extra box wing usually seen immediately below the F2005's nose. The small loss in downforce (of minimal importance here) is more than offset by the resultant reduction in drag and increased top speed.
