Renault R26 - revised front wing 30 July 2006

Part of a comprehensive new aero package, Renault adopted this revised front wing in Germany, with the additional upper profiles now longer and more curved, and attached directly to the nose cone, in a similar fashion to the Ferrari. This increases downforce, and losing the small vertical pillar that previously connected them to the main profile makes the design more efficient, allowing a clearer path for airflow moving towards the rear of the car.
