Formula 1: Hungary F1 GP 2004 – Technical Analysis


FIA Formula One Hungary Grand Prix 2004


BAR 006 – new winglets

BAR continued their endless development of the 006. The winglets, an evolution of those seen briefly at Silverstone, were, in fact, cleverly-shaped chimneys, designed to improve both airflow management and hot air venting. More efficient engine cooling was of particular benefit in Hungary’s high August temperatures.
