Sauber C31 – Australian front wing


Front wing specs comparison , differences are pointed out with yellow arrows

   By the time C31 made its track debut at Jerez  two front wing specs were evaluated till now . Initially C31 at its studio images had a wing with a larger and a more boxy second flap with a gurney tab . At Jerez and Barcelona  test on February Sauber tried a modified wing  with a new second flap of smaller profile without the gurney tab. Finally the launch spec  was evaluated for the first time at second Barcelona test on March and it is the wing  that Sauber decided to bring at the opening race of the 2012 season at Australia.

   The launch spec which provides  higher downforce , will help the team to ensure a better grip level on dusty and slippery pavement of Melbourne’s city roads . Nonetheless most of teams work hard to revise their front wings before Melbourne .
