Ferrari F2008 - nose winglet development 21 October 2008

The lower winglets (blue arrow) on the F2008's nose were introduced at June's French Grand Prix, but their width and positioning have changed over the past few months, depending on the front-wing flap used by the team. And in China, narrower winglets (inset and yellow arrows) were adopted because, thanks to Shanghai's long straights, the wider winglets weren't required to help supply the air inlet. Therefore, while the winglets keep their original function, they don't disrupt the airflow in this section of the car too much.
