The 'new' SA06 is already here for its third GP, and it is still not very clear whether it is the step in the good direction that the team was hoping for. That it sported lots of changes is clear, and the lower flipup in front of the rear wheel is even more proof thereof. The item is somewhat similar to that of Midland and even Ferrari, albeit located lower to the ground. The element here is meant to provide extra downforce and possibly reduce drag as it has the same shape as the main, upper flipup. Just like at Midland, it is held up by a support connected to the car's floor. The element and its support are not painted, thus carbon black and hard to notice.
