Red Bull RB10 - rear 'monkey seat' 16 March 2014

With beam wings effectively outlawed for 2014, the familiar form of 'monkey seat' at the rear of the car has disappeared. However, teams are still finding ways to employ similar devices around the exhaust. While most have placed them above the exhaust, Red Bull have chosen to place theirs (upper arrow) below in order to increase the efficiency of the rear diffuser. To achieve this positioning, the deformable rear crash structure has a deep S-shape (lower arrow).
