A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

The impossible often has a kind of integrity which the merely improbable lacks.

The big number "33" could be a hint. But it could also be a reflection #-o

I don`t understand ... perhaps is rather the volume or speed?

No, it's about adding another surface that acts like a vortex generator. This same design direction can be seen on front wings for some years now.
And they call it a stall. A STALL!

Is that similar to those little winglets at the edge of diffuser that Ferrari used to have? Cheers

I don't think so, completely different geometries there. Winglets on that diffuser (seen on Sauber and Haas this year of course) were used to accelerate air right behind diffuser, to help it with "pumping out" the air under the car. Just like air on bottom of race car wings accelerates, so it does on these multiple winglets. Other than that, it raises pressure on top side of diffuser a bit, creating slightly more downforce that way too.

And of course, it directs air where the team wants it to go.
And they call it a stall. A STALL!
