Ferrari 150° Italia - exhaust positioning 16 April 2011

Most teams this season are using a different exhaust layout to those used last year. The primary pipes are directed forwards (main picture). Ferrari introduced this trend in 2005 (inset), although back then the aim was for the exhaust to blow further forwards. Six years later, the latest layout is designed to free up space within the tightly-packed bodywork and improve the airflow to the rear wing and diffuser.
