Ferrari F138 - turning vane modifications 02 November 2013

On Friday in Abu Dhabi, Ferrari tested this bridge solution on the F138's vertical turning vanes, with a different shape compared to the similar version previously trialled in Spain. Whereas before it was longer and attached to the side of the cockpit, here the top link is shorter (as on the Sauber, the Swiss team having introduced their solution last year). The vertical section is also shaped differently, with a new horizontal fin near its base. Both drivers reverted to the previous, India-spec vanes for qualifying and race.
