Toro Rosso STR05 - F-duct system 25 October 2010

In Korea on Friday, Toro Rosso once again ran their F-Duct system, as they had done at Suzuka. It is quite a unique design, with the inlet of the duct separated from the engine cover (see red arrow). More conventional is that the air blows on to the rear wing's main plane (see blue arrow). This follows the example set by Force India from Silverstone, Renault from Spa, Red Bull in Singapore and McLaren, who trialled the different configuration in Suzuka before racing with it in Korea.
