Bite-size tech: Red Bull RB12 rear wing

Red Bull has mounted a low-downforce rear wing configuration on the RB12 that’ll be piloted by Max Verstappen on Friday.

This low-load wing features a shallow mainplane and upper flap, which will reduce both downforce and drag.

Aside from that, the endplate louvres have been reduced to two either side with the upper of the two conjoined with the leading edge tyre wake slot.

This reduction of louvres is in line with the reduced flap angles and how the vortex generated at the flap and endplate juncture needs to be controlled to reduce drag.

The image also affords a great shot of the installation of the Renault powerunit and all of the relevant ancillaries.
