Renault R26 - rear wing 30 June 2006

One of the changes Renault have brought to the North American races is this rear wing, with a revised wing profile, flap and endplates. The profile is now flat, rather than bending downwards at its extremities. This helps reduce drag, with minimal downforce loss. The endplates lose their wide slit, a change partly related to the stringent rules on wing flexibility, but also one that works particularly well with the latest flat wing profile.
