Toyota have introduced yet another front wing development at Magny Cours. In fact the team has a modified front wing at almost every circuit. The version for the French Grand Prix was very different to the one run at Canada (upper image) but resembles in some aspects the Monaco version. The main plane for instance retained a similar profile (1) while the spoon shape was also identical (2). There are however also brand new changes to the wing, all mainly aimed at improving stability under pitch to improve handling over the curbstones. A first is the upward curve on the outer extremities of the base plane (3). The team also finally got rid of the inward curve of the end plates (4) while the horizontal panel is now flat on the leading edge and curved ahead of the front wheel (5), opposite to the previous design.
