Ferrari reveals new front wing

Ferrari has revealed the new front wing that it will introduce this weekend as it bids to deliver its first Formula 1 victory of the season.

The new wing (pictured above) features several changes, starting with both sections of the mainplanes geometry being revised, changing both the leading and trailing edge shapes.

This has an impact on the shape of the flaps behind it, with the lower of those two reduced in height to accommodate a larger upper flap.

Meanwhile, the upper flap has been split into two almost all the way across its length, with a small juncture placed at the tip, much like last years design.

Also noticeable is the pronunciation of the vertical strakes on the trailing edge of the first section of the mainplane, improving how the airflow moves downstream.

The serrated tip used on the penultimate flaps so far this season has been discarded, whilst the notch which was added to the ‘r’ cascade has also been discarded in this new specification.
