HRT F110 – Rear floor details


 

        Taking a closer look at the rear  lower zone  we can observe the existence of a low height  vertical fence .That fence aims to create a low pressure zone behind it and in the area located  between the inner rear wheel profile and the diffuser external surface . Furthermore that fence together with the flopping upwards floor lip divert the airflow away from the wheel’s profile  reducing drag . Red Bull also raced a similar fence alongside with its floor placed exhaust pipes . The idea is not new as a few years ago Jaguar and Williams used flip ups in this area .
