Renault R26 - front-wing endplates 05 May 2006

This change for Europe appears to follow a trend started by McLaren at the last round at Imola. The rear of the endplate is now completely vertical and flat, losing the round and protruding outer profile seen on the previous version. This revision improves the alignment of the endplate with the inner profile of the front wheels, lessening the turbulence when air passing over and underneath the wing impacts the wheels.
