Ferrari F60 - revised front wing 23 May 2009

For Monaco (upper circle) Ferrari have modified their new front-wing end plate along similar lines to Brawn, with the additional outer element now taller (previous Barcelona version in lower circle), to better channel the air away from the front tyres. Strangely, this solution doesn't give a big increase in front downforce, but rather improves the efficiency of the central section of the rear diffuser. Some extra downforce has been realised, however, through the placement of two small gurney tabs on the rear of the wing elements (red arrow).
