Ferrari F2008 - vertical sidepod fins 20 July 2008

In Germany Ferrari have become the latest team to adopt a vertical fin (see blue arrow and inset) to connect the winglets placed in front of the sidepods with the rearmost edge of the car's barge boards. Also introduced by Honda here at Hockenheim, the fins decrease the vibrations of the sidepod winglets and better manage the direction of airflow towards the F2008's rear end.
