Here it is attached
and here it is missing
It seems Red Bull are still investigating "sealing the diffuser" somehow

That is Flo-vis paint, which helps them see where the airflow is going.

Yes there is Flo-Vis also,,but the little patch shaped/little squares, are heat sensitive paint.

This seems to be a significant distance further back than McLaren's exhaust exit. Why wouldn't McLaren also mount them this far rearward and then add on their extra bit of bodywork?
Robbobnob wrote:im not sure what benefit this would have, but having that upper wishbone next to the exhaust flow has the following benefits.
As the wishbone is not considered bodywork, it can be within the 3degree cone, therefore interact with the stream acting as a sort of turning vane.
the top is just the exhaust as it would naturally expand, the bottom situation is how it would expand with the wishbone in its path.
my guess would be its concentrating the flow onto the middle section of the bean wing, wouldnt be surprised if we see a ultra complicated looking monkey seat at the last test, nor do i think we have seen the final iteration of this exhaust solution
Robbobnob wrote:yes i certainly agree that it will have extra downforce across the wishbone, but Newey is the King of multi benefit aero parts so i am almost certain that there is other benefits going on
