TS is saying Red Bull will bring new front wing to Spain . The F-duct system isnt coming until maybe to Turkey as Newey is building a system of his own and they will never use it if there isnt sicnificant advantage coming of it.
Ferraris F-duct system is controlled by elbow btw.


Didn't Newey say at some point that if one wants to copy McLaren's F-duct system then they would have to rebuild the car or something like that or do I remember wrong?

No correct, he said that McLaren built there car around the F-duct, like last year with the diffusers, Brawn built there car around the diffuser, others have to implement it, but it's not totally integrated in the car as it's just a loose part of it.


Ah, thanks JoostLamers :wave:

So they have no guarantee if it works as efficiently as McLaren's?

I kind of like these new inventions, it just shows how some come up with the most amazing solutions that others start copying a.s.a.p. :cool:
To be changed soon - rko281, where are you??? LOL
