Ferrari 248 F1 - front wing development 10 March 2006

For Bahrain, the 248 F1's front wing features a deep-spoon shape in the centre of the main profile, replacing the additional box wing seen below last year's nose. To make what is effectively a double-decker wing, this is coupled with two additional profiles connected to the endplates either side on the nose cone. The endplates themselves are different - the front section of their top edges are now almost flat, not steeply angled as before. Finally, a small fin is added either side of the nose, just in front of the suspension's upper wishbone pickup point. This acts as a stabliliser and airflow splitter, reducing turbulence in this area.
