That's why the covering bodywork was mounted high and shuttered. But the lowering of the front bodywork on the R15 plus has simply made ideal pressure recovery for the splitter unachievable.
But there are whispers that the flow separation is intentional to an extent. Certainly part of the flow separation is the simple fact of life of the the splitter's design and execution. But we understand that there is also beneficial aspect; the separated flow has less energy and it makes picking up sand and dust and exhausting it directly into the radiators less likely, as long as it is directed to behave in such a manner. The VGs simply allow for this entire condition to be better controlled.
