McLaren MP4-21 - front wing 11 June 2006

As in Monaco, in Britain the McLaren sported a double-S profile to its front wing, with the outer extremities bending upwards. Here, however, that upward bend was even more extreme, creating a greater gap between the wing profile and the ground, so as to reduce the pitch sensitivity of the car at high speed. Such a change is very useful on a medium to high speed circuit such as Silverstone.
