Front wing of the car, like all other body panels of a F1 car, it’s made out of carbon fiber. The thing with this lightweight material is that it’s super strong, but its strength can be designed based on the way the weave is laid.
Hamilton, talking to the Pinkham, “It’s crazy: you can stand on this, and it won’t bloody move, but as soon as you touch one wheel, the whole thing flies off.”
