F1 Testing – Hi Res Photo Front Wing Comparison

by on March 4, 2013

I put together a collection of photos depicting front wings on the 2013 F1 challengers.  You can take a quick look and do your own comparison.

One thing is abundantly clear, front wing complexity has increased making them ever more intricate and critical.  In an F1 era where Aerodynamics rule, the front wing becomes the front line in the battle against airflow.  It’s importance has increased in the priority sequence and the slightest change can have great implications.

  1. Wow…nice comparison study, Ernie! Caterham, Lotus, and Mercedes have some wildly complex layers of undulations in their front wings!
