Williams FW27 - winglets 29 May 2005

Also seen in Monaco, Williams' Nurburgring winglets are based on a series of double profiles. The fronter-most winglets (in blue, next to the cooling chimney) have a lower profile that also acts as the structure's support mounting. The rearmost winglets (white) also sport a double profile at their rear, connected by a small vertical endplate. These changes are, of course, to optimise the aerodynamics at the rear of the car and to increase downforce.
