Ferrari F10 - modified brake ducts 07 November 2010

An additional, small fin has been added to the front brake ducts in Brazil to gain any extra downforce possible. On Friday only Alonso had it, together with a three-slot configuration in the underbody in front of the rear tyres. It's interesting to note that in the final few races of 2010 a lot of effort has been made by all the teams to optimise the aero efficiency of the brake ducts, almost treating them as aerodynamic devices.
