Ferrari F10 - exhaust-blown diffuser 27 June 2010

Ferrari have made radical changes for Valencia, introducing their version of Red Bull's exhaust-blown diffuser. They have dramatically modified the shape of their exhausts, from the previous design (1), to a lower, more RB6-inspired layout (2). They've also introduced a new gearbox case to Felipe Massa's car to raise the rear suspension pick-up points to help accommodate the changes. There's also a larger radiator layout (3) to handle the additional heat within the lower and more enclosed bodywork. Inset, you can see the exhaust on the F10 is shorter, and therefore ends before Red Bull's.
