Toyota copy Ferrari's wheel fairing

By on

It finally didn't take too long for a team to copy the front wheel fairing from Ferrari. The Scuderia introduced it at Silverstone in its initial form. Toyota now have a similar system with a carbon plate that does not rotate with the wheel itself. As a result, the brake exhaust is always sent downwards to the rear of the car. The location is very similar but Ferrari have a more advanced system in that it has guiding vanes inside the plate opening to further improve airflow. Sooner or later Toyota will undoubtedly go the same route.

Williams used it in Free practices, but not in the Race.

Renault seemed to be using it in Barcelona testing as well. ... 650eu9.jpg
