BMW Sauber F1.06 - revised barge boards 10 June 2006

A small but useful change for Silverstone, these elements now feature a saw-tooth profile at the base, similar to the design used by Ferrari. This substantially ups the effectiveness of the barge boards, by dramatically reducing the vortices generated in this area, hence improving the aero efficiency of the bottom of the car.
