Ferrari F2012 – rear wing evolution from Monaco to Silverstone (including Mugello Test)


 

G spec – Debut : Mugello test on May , raced : Not yet
Notices : It is actually the wing raced in Spain (F spec) without the mini plane .Ferrari tested at least three new types of rear wing ( F ,G and H spec) at Mugello before the Spanish race .

H spec – Debut : Mugello test on May , raced : Not yet
Notices : It is actually the Spanish wing ( F spec) with a small vane on top of the endplate ( in yellow circle ) aiming drag cut . The endplate vanes featured since the Australian spec ( C spec ) force the air flowing at the outside surface of the endplate to follow a similar pattern with the air flowing inside them . When the two air-flows meet and mix at the trailing edge of the endplate will eventually create weaker vortexes favoring top speed .

I spec – Debut : Monaco , raced : Monaco
Notices : New wing for Monaco.It is actually a hybrid between the Australian ( C spec) and Spanish (F spec) wing . The second flap recovered the V-less profile while the gills reshaped curvy once more . The mini plane is also new having now a double profile, a wavy main flap and supports having the front edges to curl outwards, all to create more downforce ( the old mini plane  in inset) .

      Beyond Monaco Ferrari brought back the Spanish spec .Of course some adjustments on wing attack angle were made from race to race to suit better with each track special characteristics .
