Williams FW30 - front-wing development 21 July 2008

Over the course of the German race weekend Williams adopted two separate solutions to the rearmost flap of the FW30's front wing. One change featured a narrower flap (bottom image, red arrow), while the other boasted a wider flap with a steeper profile towards its centre (top image, red arrow). While both solutions assisted in terms of drag, the second solution provided a greater level of downforce at the car's front end, and it was therefore left to the drivers to decide which configuration better suited their driving style.
