Williams FW29 - front wing update 08 April 2007

Sepang's long straights and medium to low-speed corners makes finding a compromise between straight-line speed and downforce difficult. Cars are prone to slide sideways here and you need enough downforce to keep the car on the track. Williams have adopted a high downforce configuration for their front wing. The rearmost flap of the FW29's dual-flap assembly sports a pointy extension to its central section either side of the nose cone (large red arrow). In another change, the additional curved profile, adopted since China last year (small red arrow), now features wider elements (thin red line) to increase the downforce generated.
