Renault R30 - F-duct system 29 August 2010

In Belgium, Renault were the latest team to introduce their version of McLaren's innovative F-duct system. It has worked well over the course of the weekend, helping the car achieve very competitive straight-line speeds on Spa's long straights, with some estimating it to be worth over 0.5s of lap time at the Belgian circuit. The air directs on to the main section of the wing, not the flap, and is activated by the driver's left hand.
