The ears are in fact two large and highly-sculpted winglets attached to either side of the RA107s nosecone. They are just one of a number of aerodynamic modifications Honda are experimenting with this week, as they bid to improve their cars performance ahead of next weekends Spanish Grand Prix.
Honda tester Christian Klien is the man behind the wheel for the Japanese team on what is their final day at the Circuit de Catalunya.
