Ferrari SF15-T - rear brake duct aerodynamics

10 Jul 2015

As well as a new front wing, Ferrari also introduced updates to the rear of the SF15-T at Silverstone.

They have extended the brake duct as an aerodynamic device, adding three vortex generators (top arrow) to the vertical element and an additional one (bottom arrow) around the rear tyre. The purpose of this is to manage the negative effects of turbulence created by the rotating tyre. This is detailed aerodynamic development in an area that everyone is working on at the moment.
