Williams FW27 - front wing 07 October 2005

For Japan, Williams have introduced their own version of the secondary wing profiles first seen on the Renault and also since adopted by Jordan, BAR and Minardi. The additional profiles are not part of the endplate, but are linked to them and to the foremost part of the nosecone, in a similar way to the solution briefly adopted by Sauber earlier in the year. The design increases available downforce, by raising airflow speed between the main and the additional profile, hence improving front-end stability and sharpness.
