Renault R31 - new front wing 10 April 2011

Renault have brought a new front wing to Malaysia, which features an updated endplate. The small fin on the exterior now has a twisted shape, but there is still a longitudinal hole through which airflow can pass (see blue arrow). After running back-to-back tests on Friday and Saturday morning, both Nick Heidfeld and Vitaly Petrov decided to use the new front wing in qualifying and the race. Petrov also briefly tested a new rear wing, before swapping back to the older version, which the team used in Australia.
