Renault R26 - revised sidepod shields 25 June 2006

Another change for Canada is these bigger shields in front of the sidepods. The change may not be a particularly original one - Honda are among the other teams to carry similar revisions in Montreal - but it is certainly an important one. They improve airflow management over the sculpted sidepods - a key area in terms of the car's overall aerodynamic balance - with big gains possible if the team get it right.
