At last, Ferrari copy the shark fin

By on

It has taken the team a while, but Ferrari have eventually developed a dorsal fin engine cover, very similar to the likes of Red Bull Racing, Renault, ... . In fact, currently only McLaren do not have a shark fin but they have obviously been too busy developing their highly succesful new front wing and the dumbo wings.
As is known by now, the dorsal fin is designed to improve the efficiency when the car is in yaw. It straightens the airflow to prevent a reduction of downforce when the car is turning.
