Marussia Virgin MVR02 – Revised front wing in Melbourne


 VR02 had a revised front wing in Melbourne having the endplate’s outer winglet rejected (in yellow box) . That bending downwards winglet increased the ability of the endplate to divert air away from the tyre profile despite the fact that due to its negative attack angle created some lift . Probably real track  feedback differed significantly from theoretical CFD (computational fluid dynamics) data suggesting the rejection of the winglet .
