Force India introduce new front wing endplates

By on

Force India continue their development programme on the VJM-01 and introduced a new set of front wing endplates. The new design - in the upper part of the image - sees the removal of the long used bulge at the top end of the endplate. A small winglet behind the horizontal stabiliser was added for that bit of extra downforce. Also noted is a gurney flap that the team added to the wing when used in combination with the new endplate. At the race however, Sutil opted for the previous - lower image - design, while Fisichella benefited from the new one.

This is not a new FWEP. It was already present last year on the Spyker.

Both the upper and lower images showing Force India endplates are actually very different to those of the Spyker in a number of areas.

Welcome to F1Technical BadgerRacing,

Well yes, the Force India endplates, and many other areas differ greatly from what Spyker ran. Since Force India has been developing the car themselves since taking possesion of this Formula One team, so it is logical that they have developed the aero (among other areas) to a further extent of where Spyker left off.
