Launch (A) spec

Launch (A) spec

  Sauber’s rear wing consists of two upper flaps and one lower, often called beam wing, which supports the whole wing on the car’s rear crash structure . Parallel endplates enclose all flaps to enhance downforce production . Many others characteristics, listed below, aid to make a design successful or not .

1.single profiled extra winglet on the beam wing , helps to raise downforce

2. a series of four gills on the endplate surface to bleed air to the outside , hence reduce drag

3. main flap with slightly raised upwards central zone

4. second flap with a smaller chord, this is the movable flap when DRS (Drag reduction System)  is activated

5. two flap fasteners to secure inflexibility of flaps

6. the L shaped husk encapsulates the DRS activator mechanism

7. endplate’s upper sector features a deep cut, again to reduce drag
