Ferrari wing is speed boost – report

(GMMf1NET) A brand new nose and wing for Ferrari's '248 F1' 2006 car is worth up to three tenths of a second per lap, a specialist magazine says.

'Auto Motor Und Sport' in Germany published photos of the new feature, which has rid the front wing of the little 'mini wing', replacing it with a curvy scoop. Also appearing on the Ferrari wing for the first time at Mugello is an extra element, extending from the nose to the top of the end plates.

The magazine said Ferrari's speed boost should put the Maranello based team on a par with Honda, just behind pacesetter Renault.

Technical director Ross Brawn, meanwhile, was quoted as saying that the 248's widely reported clutch problems will be solved.
