Ferrari 248 F1 - additional 'horn winglets' 29 September 2006

New for China, as part of Ferrari's never-ending aero development, but already seen on other cars such as the Renault and the Honda, is this additional device - part of the airflow management in the crucial area in front of the sidepods. These elements' function is to split the airflow in two parts, the upper part directed towards the rear wing, and the lower part directed onto the lower section of the sidepods and the car's stepped bottom. This helps reduce turbulence, generate some additional downforce, and improve the whole aerodynamic efficiency of the car's rear end.
