First new rear wing in ages for Spyker

By on

Spyker F1 was again running their Turkey spec rear wing at Fuji this weekend, the first with a curved mainplane for the team this year. In fact it appears as if Spyker have hardly done any development on their rear wing until getting Mike Gascoyne aboard and developing the B-spec car. Back in Turkey however the wing was fitted on the F8-VII and it debuts here on the F8-VII B. While most other teams are already heavily focused on next year, Spyker is continuing to get comfortable with their new car as the rear end is the basis for next year's Spyker. The wing itself now curves upwards at the outer edges and obviously aims to improve overall efficiency. Similar wings were already seen at McLaren and Renault during 2006.

Well at least it works, I think its a great shot in the arm for the team to have someone like Mike Gascoyne on board, and then have focused and dedicated investors step up and take control of the financial side of things. Raises the bar throughout the lower order teams.

I personally think this is one team that will be stronger as time goes on. roll on 2008. :D

Force India is the new team name. Corny, and I can\'t remember the last team that had a country in its name (apart from the teams that had \'British\').

Now that the season is over let\'s talk about this wing until next year.
