Red Bull RB6 - F-duct system 30 May 2010

Red Bull have introduced their version of the F-Duct system at Istanbul Park. It's a very similar concept to those on the McLaren and Ferrari, with the air blowing on to the rear wing via two big pipes inside the engine cover (red arrows). Like the first version of Ferrari's system, the duct is controlled by the driver's left hand. The team tested it during Friday in Turkey, but it was removed from both cars for qualifying and the race because it was not consistent enough and it was difficult to operate. It will be back on the cars in Canada.
