F1 Endplate

The endplate is a piece of bodywork found at the limit of the Front Wing or Rear Wing, boosting aerodynamic performance by reducing drag and increasing downforce

Made from carbon fibre, endplates are usually perforated, allowing air to flow through and around the wing. 

Some teams have experimented with different shapes and winglets for their endplates, but the general design has remained similar over the years.

The FIA regulations dictate certain features of the size and shape of endplates to manage the dirty air and minimise the disruption to the following cars. explains the 2022 regulation changes – here
