Lotus T127 – Bahraini front wing details


           Lotus wing for sure differs from other new teams front wing designs  not only in complexity but also in elegance and  … sponsorship . It is mainly divided into two  sections , the three outer flaps and the inner double smaller flaps separated from the previous mentioned via a vertical fence .   The inner double profiled section causes less air turbulence and thus improved quality of airflow towards the car underbody while the additional  double profiled cascade winglets provide the needed amount of downforce to preserve enough front grip . The outer little endplate fence divert airflow away from the wheel profile to reduce drag .
