Williams FW27 - front wing modifications 01 April 2005

The evolution of the FW27's front wing continues in Bahrain with the small winglets inside the endplates reduced in section (previously they curved upwards on their inside edge). This small change is hugely important to the front-end balance of the car and hence to improved tyre wear and cornering. The reduced winglet width reflects the higher top speed at this track, where it is not necessary to increase the downforce level under braking.
