BMW Sauber F1.08 - Monza-specific front wing 15 September 2008

Both the nosecone and front wing on the BMW were modified for the high-speed Italian Grand Prix. The nosecone pillars had a new profile, the leading edge sloping forwards (inset) rather than backwards, and the height of the pillars was reduced, thanks to the front wing's central spoon profile all but disappearing in favour of a far less curved design. The flap was a single element, instead of the usual double assembly, providing less downforce and - more importantly - a huge reduction in drag.
