McLaren MP4-20 - front wing 02 September 2005

The fact that Monza is the only ultra fast circuit on the calendar is clearly visible in the small dimensions of the wing elements on all the cars here. Minimal downforce is needed and the high speeds mean this can be generated with very small flaps and fins. The McLaren sports a single front flap, rather than the usual double one, crucial for cutting drag as the cars approach 370 kph on the main straight.
