On the first day of pre-season testing in Barcelona, Williams and Haas followed the example of Mercedes and Ferrari and installed on their new machines T-shaped wing.
It is worth noting that on the Mercedes, the rear wing acts as a separate element of aerodynamics, while on the cars from Ferrari, Williams and Haas it is mounted on top of the so-called “shark fin”.
In addition to providing increasing levels of downforce, T-shaped wing also contributes to a better distribution of the air flow through the rear wing.
There is speculation that soon other teams will also inherit this concept.
