BMW Sauber F1.07 - engine cover detail 26 August 2007

At the last round in Hungary we looked at BMW updates behind the rear axle. In Turkey we look at those just in front of it. The bodywork has been lowered in the area around the engine exhausts - by about 2.5 cm - meaning the exhausts now protrude more clearly (see magnified detail). This change allows for an increased and less disturbed airflow to the lower profile of the rear wing (making the wing more effective) and also helps with extraction from the diffuser, hence producing more downforce.
