Red Bull jumps the doubled front wing wagon

By on

After McLaren showed up at the Spanish test with an upper element on their front wing, Red Bull, Toro Rosso and Honda were the only teams that didn't have any form of upper element on their front wings. Spyker and Super Aguri are both running somewhat old fashioned items as the others have elements running from the endplates to the nosecone (or over it in McLaren's case). This new Red Bull wing changes this with a design that appears to be a mixture of the Renault and Williams versions. It certainly seemed to help as Mark Webber was second fastest on the third day of the Barcelona test.

In a strange

way, I\'m very slightly disappointed ... kind of hoped that Newey could produce a competitive \"traditional\" wing. Or pull something else out of the hat. But it\'s nice to see they\'re gaining speed, especially on a track that is so indicative of competitiviness. They might soon do justice to the potential of the Renault engine. And the moustache wing doesn\'t do too much damage to the nice \"mallard\'s bill\" lines that I find so (subjectively) pleasing :roll: . It certainly took a while for this wing arrangement to be adapted throughout most of the field.

I wonder if Toro Rosso will get the wing too?
