Renault R26 - double nose winglets 25 June 2006

Renault continue to develop the dominant R26, with 16 small changes for Canada according to the team's engineers. Some are clearly visible - like these nose winglets - while others are more subtle (but no less effective), internal revisions. The nose winglets have been doubled up to increase their effect. They improve airflow management immediately in front of and over the upper suspension wishbone, cleaning up the airflow directed into the sidepods and towards the rear of the car. This helps overall aero efficiency by reducing drag and turbulence.
