New W-rear wing for BMW Sauber

By on

BMW's new rear wing sports a new profile that reminds somehow of McLaren front wing designs at the time of the MP4-18. A W-shaped plane with an upward bend in the centre is designed for a reasonable compromise between drag and downforce. Their wing allowed for high topspeeds as it is low on drag while providing the maximum possible grip in the chicanes and both lesmo corners.

The exhaust is pointing up more than on any other car... won\'t this disturb the air goiing to the rear wing?

Maybe it is being used to channel the air from the exhaust too so that it doesnt heat up any vital part of the car
