Ferrari to make F-duct easier for drivers

Ferrari might modify its F-duct system so that it is easier for the drivers to use.

Team figures defended the ease of use and safety of its solution when it debuted in Barcelona, after video footage showed Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa using their hand to block the cockpit air inlet.

McLaren’s drivers block the air inlet with their knee.

Maranello based Ferrari has already vowed to modify the system for Turkey, after analysis of its use in Spain showed that downforce was being shed even when the F-duct was not being activated.

And Stefano Domenicali told Spain’s AS newspaper: “We are working on different solutions that will be more comfortable for our drivers than the first version.

“We have not yet decided what will be the position (of the cockpit air inlet),” the Italian added.
