Williams FW30 - rear wing development 12 October 2008

In Japan, Williams have introduced a modified rear wing, with a slightly revised main profile, featuring a steep curve in its central section (red arrow), close to its boomerang-shaped vertical pillars. This solution, coupled with the slightly narrower flap, improves the car's top speed at the end of Fuji Speedway's long straight, while also providing enough downforce in the slower sections of the track to guarantee the grip required under braking and the traction needed out of the corners.
