Red Bull RB7 - rearward exhaust 12 November 2011

The Abu Dhabi race will be the penultimate time long exhausts can be used to blow air into the side channel of a car's rear diffuser to boost downforce. The Red Bull solution can be seen in the drawing. Next season blown diffusers will be banned, with exhaust exits having to be positioned periscope style atop the rear bodywork.
