Force India VJM06 - front wing vortex generators 07 July 2013

In Germany we can see Force India have followed Red Bull's lead from Spain and applied small vortex generators (red arrow) on the main plane of the VJM06's front wing. Their main purpose is not purely aerodynamic, but also to stop pieces of rubber (tyre marbles kicked up from the track surface) blocking the slot between the main plane and flap, reducing its efficiency.
