Ferrari F2012 - modified rear diffuser 18 November 2012

Ferrari brought to Austin a modified version of the new diffuser (see main drawing), which they introduced in Abu Dhabi, for title hopeful Fernando Alonso to use. Unlike the older version, which was run in America by Felipe Massa (see inset), the revised diffuser no longer features two small flaps on the outer channel's side walls. Once again the Italian team also evaluated the addition of multiple vertical fins in the lower section of the rear wing's endplates, but decided to race with the previous solution which has shorter vertical fins.
