Toro Rosso STR6 – Diffuser



An interesting diffuser concept with complex central zone for STR6 but in fact not  new for Formula 1 in general  . Toyota , Williams and Sauber in the past raced similar multiple central channels to increase effective diffuser volume and also change the way airflow exits  from the centre and the way it mixes with the air coming over the diffuser to cut drag  . As for the diffuser’s roof tab , is divided into two sections , one outer and one inner slotted to let air pass through ( in blue arrows ) decreasing drag further .

Apart from the centre zone the side tunnels have several vertical fences of different length to help extract air under the floor more efficiently preventing flow detachment creating less turbulence . Diffuser is possible to undergo changes , changes that would be probably triggered by the way exhausts blow the hot emissions to the rear .
