F2012 New Front Wing in Japan

Ferrari brought a revised upper flap in Japan for the front wing used in Singapore and tested in the Magny Cours young driver test.
Top: Old one       Bottom: New one

The new reshaped flap is longer in order to produce more downforce and improve the aerodynamic balance of the car since the CoP (Center of Pressure) would move backwards with the new higher downforce rear wing brought in Japan (Japan Rear Wing) and previously tested but not raced in Singapore(Singapore Rear Wing).
In addition the trailing edges of the flap are smoothed out

Compared to the one raced in Singapore.
