Ferrari 248 F1 - engine cover 15 July 2006

In the Jerez test prior to France Ferrari tried out numerous developments for forthcoming races, but only a few were adopted for Magny-Cours. One was a new engine cover, the second major revision of this part since the start of the season. In line with other teams, its top features a vertical fin which dramatically reduces its cross sectional area. This allows for a cleaner airflow towards the car's rear wing, hence improving the wing's efficiency.
