As part of their latest B-spec car, Spyker is pushing development by introducing several new bits. One of them is this new front wing endplate. It comes together with a new front wing but especially features a winglet that is curved down (as marked by the arrow). All other teams also have a similar element on their end plates but their implementation is a simple plain element without curvature. Basically such items to the endplate help reduce induced drag from the front wing tips ahead of the front wheel. Spyker may have set a trend by improving its efficiency. If it works for other teams we can expect some copycats soon.
Its a fine little bit of carbon fiber, very sexy.
