Special rear wings for Virgin drivers at Italy

December 23, 2011 2 comments

           Monza is a special very low downforce track , also known as ‘Temple of Speed’ .Top speed is vital at long stretches and traditionally all teams bring in Monza special aerodynamic packages to minimize drag  . The MVR02 Monza rear wing spec had gill-less endplates and reduced airfoil chord . Noticeably  d’ Ambrosio raced a wing spec with a gurney tab ( in black) to give him more grip and confidence in Parabolica while Glock had a tab-less version.

Marussia Virgin MVR02 – Small modification to the rear wing at Spa

December 23, 2011 1 comment

  Virgin raced a tab-less rear wing at Spa hoping for greater top speed . Tab (Gurney tab, in black in pre Belgium spec) is a small flap tab projecting from the trailing edge of the upper airfoil . It is used to increase downforce production . Downforce level at Spa isn’t so high and thus teams often launch modifications to their rear wings .

Marussia Virgin MVR02-Rear wing revisions before Melbourne


    Virgin introduced design philoshophy revisions to the rear wing  before Melbourne . The revised wing had a clear construction regarding flap separators differing from the old one featuring a mixed concept . In particular the old spec had two separators at the second flap and three on the main flap (one at the middle and two close to the endplates) . Probably the change had to do with the efficiency of the flap moving mechanism  . Finally to boost downforce  the size of the tab fence across the second flap rear lip has been increased .
