Ferrari F2007 - rear fin / airflow splitter 08 July 2007

The rear end of the F2007 has been heavily developed in the last couple of races and is now dramatically lower than before. The aerodynamic design of this area has been refined in every detail to provide an efficient and clean airflow to the diffuser, to help increase downforce and maintain the car's rear-end stability. At Silverstone, a sort of slightly curved splitter (yellow arrow) was adopted in front of the rear wheels, replacing the previous vertical one. The curvature of this new element makes for a wider channel in the airflow, broadening and increasing the airflow to the diffuser.
