I hope u get what i'm trying to show...it would be a kind of hybrid between the acer ducts and mclaren's bulges...the idea is to still have some room below the ducts as was the idea with both the acer ducts and mclaren's design but at the same time utilize the coanda effect which ferrari didnt take advantage of with their original design..they were just using the down-wash to deflect the exhaust plume...
(for those that will ask....the channels are not pointing to the tires..that was my mistake..i was just trying to imply that it will curve downwards just like the mclaren channels)
Ferrari have just signed a new aerodynamicist, I think that you lost out!
But there seems to be little point in Ferrari just copying another team. It could help them, but then again, they bravely created a new concept, that hasn't worked fully at present, but who's to say it won't?
although it would be something like copying the macca....i think that to make the launch exhaust to work the need to take advantage of the coanda effect...which would make the acer ducts look a lot like the macca's bulges...so although it might not be copying if something like that happens i can already see the mclaren thread filling up with the same comments (Ferrari copied us):P
