These aerodynamic mirrors are built specifically to conform to FIA standards. The lens measures 150mm wide x 50mm high (6" W x 2" H) to meet the minimum requirement for mirror size for formula cars from F4 to F1. They can give a much wider field of view than the more conventional 110mm wide mirrors typically used in club racing.
The aluminum stem is angled for mounting on the vertical outer wall of a formula car cockpit. A ball joint at the base and a left-to-right pivot at the housing provide a wide range of adjustment.* Two 10-32 flat head screws are provided for mounting. The housing is genuine carbon fiber (not plastic with a carbon-look print). The convex lens gives a steadier image and wider field of view than a flat lens, but distance is slightly distorted ("Objects in mirror are closer than they appear").
This mirror fits the left side only. Sold individually; matching Right Hand Convex Lens Carbon Fiber FIA GP3 Mirror (Part No. 5183-004) sold separately.
* Note that both joints have a set screw which must be tightened after the mirror is adjusted. This requires access to the backside of the panel where the mirror is mounted.
