I think the Ferrari nose already meets the two cross section regulation thus this is only an add-on below the nose structure. The RP & Alfa noses employ a trick in the regulations to include those slots in the structure but they still have to comply with the cross-section rules & enclosed surface rule (?), thus they cannot be "see through" like here.
But drag too, a lot of it.
It's not exactly new, now i believe it's been introduced in Hungary together with the new barge boards, but definitely flown under the radar in this topic is the new(ish) support for the X-vane (black element connecting the X-vane to the crash structure).lio007 wrote: ↑Thu Sep 19, 2019 8:13 amSome shots from Singapore by @AlbertFabrega:

It's point isn't to create downforce per se, but rather create a vortex. For example Mercedes has the cape much longer than everyone else, but they also don't run the vertical elements under the nose.
