BMW Sauber F1.06 - rear winglet detail 20 January 2006

The area close to the rear wheels shows a strong resemblance to the previous Sauber C24 in many details, even if the bodywork is narrower close to the transmission. The notably similar elements are (left arrow) the venting gills on top of the sidepods (right in front of the short exhaust pipes), (middle arrow) the big flip-ups in front of the rear wheels, which now feature a vertical lip, and (right arrow) the triangular horizontal fin, whose function is to split the airflow to lessen its impact on the rear suspension elements.
