BMW Sauber F1.06 - horn wings 16 July 2006

Along with the striking vertical nose fins they added in France, the team also added two 'horn' wings, similar to those on the McLaren, behind the driver's head. They are the only team so far to follow McLaren's lead on this solution, the main function of which is to improve the overall aerodynamic balance of the car through the wings' central position. They modify the airflow directed towards the rear wing, improving its efficiency and raising downforce levels.
