Williams FW29 - front-end aero 19 February 2007

Williams constantly developed this area last year and the results are seen here. It is crucial to correctly manage airflow at the front of the car. It is where you begin controlling the air that passes to the rear of the car, feeding the rear wing and the under-body diffuser, and the air entering the sidepods for engine cooling. On the FW29, Williams have kept the same configuration seen during the last races of 2006. The front wing features a long sinuous upper profile, while an array of vertical shields at front-suspension level help to deflect the turbulence generated by the front wheels.
