Ferrari 150° Italia - rear wing updates 30 July 2011

Ferrari tried a lot of new components in Hungary on Friday, even some aero solutions that could be useful on the 2012 car, which will have a differently shaped cockpit. Both Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa trialled this rear wing in a back-to-back test with the configuration used previously for qualifying and the race in Germany. It has a curved main plane (centre red arrow), where the previous one was straight, with only three gills in the endplate (left red arrow), and different positioning of the planes relative to the endplate (right red arrow). These endplates seem to be in Spa configuration, but with, of course, a different, medium-downforce main plane and flap set-up.
