Ferrari F138 – Rear wing , Jerez test updates


B and C specs – Jerez test on February

B and C specs – Jerez test on February

     A revised wing ( B spec) made its debut at the first pre season test at Jerez having an additional single profiled winglet ( also called beam winglet or monkey seat), which was mounted on the allowed centre zone of the beam wing to increase the overall efficiency of the wing .

     Later during the Jerez test Ferrari attached on the trailing tip of the second flap (highlighted in yellow , C spec – inset) a large gurney tab . Gurney tab makes the wing act like having a larger chord than it actually does and moreover allow steeper flap angles preventing stalling, hence produce more downforce with a small drag penalty.
