Brawn GP add sidepod panel to BGP001

By on

It has taken them a while, but Brawn GP have developed their own version of a sidepod panel to smoothen airflow around the sidepod. Arguably, the front end of the Brawn's sidepods are the cleanest of any current car, and hence the need to add these panels may have been less, but any little bit helps.

During the winter testing season and the first half of the year, most of the teams developed similar devices as they proved to be useful in earlier seasons. Brawn however decided to continue with inboard wing mirrors, whereas BMW Sauber have fitted the mirrors on top of the sidepod panels.

These were installed at Monza. Seems to have proven its airflow at high speeds.
