Mono Build Entry #17 - Winglets

0007 now has wings. Using full scale templates from the CAD data for the car, we mounted the front winglets to the core body panels. The winglets came late in the development of the Mono, and stemmed from the CFD work done on the car by Stuttgart University. While at first glance they might seem purely for down force, the winglets main function is to clean and direct the air flow to the radiators.
