Renault R28 - revised bridge wing 27 April 2008

This change forms part of Renault's revised aero package for Barcelona. The upper profile now sports a semicircular central section (circled), which has increased the gap between it and the top of the R28's nose. This helps to reduce any blockage of airflow in this area and also means the depth of the upper profile's outer extremities can be increased, producing a more relevant downforce load without increasing the flap angle. This solution is particularly effective on long straights where top speed is important, but also works well on twisty track sections, where front-end sharpness is paramount.
