Ferrari F2007 - new front wing 12 May 2007

In addition to their rear bodywork and sidepod updates, Ferrari also introduced a new front wing in Spain. Its main profile now features a dual curve (blue arrows) towards its outer extremities, in contrast to the previous flat version. The change helps increase the quantity of air passing under and close to the endplates, and hence raises the amount of pressure generated in this area. The upper profiles have also been revised, with small vertical fins (yellow arrows) added, to increase pressure in the profiles' outermost sections. They also help to better direct airflow towards the barge boards and sidepod inlets.
