BMW Sauber - F1.07 barge board development 26 May 2007

The F1.07's Monaco aero package is one of the most highly developed in the paddock, even if much of it is carried over from the last round in Spain. A key part of its development here is the barge boards placed at front-axle level. These now sport a clearly visible horizontal knife-edge profile (arrow) at their base. This improves their efficiency, slightly increasing front-end downforce. This in turn improves the car's front-end sharpness, something that is of paramount importance within the tight confines of Monte Carlo's street circuit.
