FER­RARI TURN­ING VANE

Autosport (UK) - - MEXICAN GRAND PRIX TECH FOCUS/F1 - GARY ANDERSON

Fer­rari in­tro­duced a new front-wing end­plate for the United States GP with a big­ger gap be­tween the trail­ing edge of the end­plate and the trail­ing edge ‘Gur­ney flap’ on the rear­most flap.

On the rear­most flap, Fer­rari has now fit­ted a small turn­ing vane (blue ar­rows) in this area to help turn more air­flow around the out­side of the front tyre. It has also fit­ted a small ver­ti­cal split­ter (red ar­row) in the outer end­plate, which again will help re­duce the amount of air­flow the wing sec­tion will be pulling in un­der the end­plate foot.
