Ferrari F138 – Rear wing , Melbourne spec


D spec – second Barcelona test and Australia

D spec – second Barcelona test on March

       At second Barcelona test one more new wing spec appeared which at a first glimpse looks alike with the previous version but any similarity collapses with a closer look in details . The upper part of the wing is completely new , it has new endplates with a less intense cut on top and shortened gills which allowed the construction of a longer second flap, all changes to improve downforce production . Finally the new spec gives more freedom for mechanics to adjust the attack angle of the flaps as it sports additional adjustment points on the outer section of the endplates for that cause .

      The D spec came by with a new higher downforce front wing to keep the aerodynamic balance of the car unaffected .

At Melbourne and Sepang Ferrari discarded the beam winglet favoring greater top speed  but kept the rest wing characteristics unchanged .
