W01 – Bahraini front wing spec


            The W01 at Bahrain featured  many  revisions at  front wing compared to the one used during Winter testing  .The changes that took place are the following :

1.The inner additional winglet’s endplate is now smaller

2.The inner second plane profile has a deep cut . This cut reduces the overall plane surface and the generated downforce

3.A tab is added at the second plane extremities to add downforce and counter face the downforce loss by the reduction of the second plane’s surface .

4.The central zone is now stepped higher than the main profile level

5. The curvy entry channel under the wing profile , at the endplates bottom edge , is slightly enlarged to increase further the  quantity of air passing under the wing
