FIA Formula One Belgium Grand Prix 2004

Ferrari F2004 - third front damper

One of the secrets of the F2004's perfect balance and its smooth behaviour over the kerbs was its accurate suspension. The front was a development of the 2003 version and still featured a horizontal third element to efficiently control the roll and pitch of the car. Small and light, the element could be easily changed or adjusted during practice.

Ferrari F2004 - front wing

A hybrid solution of sorts from Ferrari. The same new wing profile introduced at Hockenheim, but in combination with the flap used in Canada and the USA. This mix provided a very good balance between top speed and downforce.

Williams FW26 - new winglets

The FW26B's revised rear bodywork featured newer, much bigger, winglets on top of the sidepods and eliminated the shark-like vents present on the older version. The solution was very effective on the long straights at Spa and was used for the remainder of the season.
