BMW Sauber F1.08 - front-wing development 24 June 2008

In France, the F1.08 once again featured its distinctive 'boomerang' winglets and also sported a revised front wing. In comparison to its previous incarnation in Montreal (see area highlighted red), the depth of the wing's upper flap was widened at the centre (see area highlighted yellow). The team had brought both options with them to Magny-Cours, but after evaluating both during practice, they opted to use the revised version, which improved downforce at the car's front without noticeably increasing drag.
