Ferrari F2008 - sculpted front wing pillars 13 September 2008

On a fast track like Monza even the most minimal change can boost a car's efficiency. For the Italian event, the F2008's nosecone has been slightly modified to feature sculpted front wing pillars (see inset). Instead of their standard straight vertical edge, the pillars are now curved at the front (see orange arrow). This minimizes the impact of the airflow against the pillars, reducing turbulence and thus helping to achieve a good aero balance, despite the smaller-than-usual flap on the front wing.
