Renault R30 - F-duct system 13 November 2010

The drivers are pleased F-duct systems will be banned next season, as they take a risk when they operate them. This illustration shows Renault's F-duct, which is a good example of the system used by many teams. The driver can operate it by blocking the hole at the side of the steering wheel with his left hand (red arrow). This often requires the driver to briefly let go of the steering wheel.
