HRT F111 , Fin-less engine cover for Liuzzi in China


 Liuzzi , China

In China Liuzzi raced with a fin-less engine cover in contrast to Karthikeyan ( lower illustration in yellow )  . The shark fin improves car streamline but has a negative impact as it makes the car more sensitive to side winds . Liuzzi choice to reject the shark fin can be justified by the fact that his car version in Sinopec had less rear axle winglets    ( https://formula1techandart.wordpress.com/2011/08/20/hrt-f111-rear-axle-winglets-revisions/ ) which provided less aerodynamic grip  to the rear axle. So keeping the shark fin could potentially cause handling issues of the rear end and even excessive ware to the rear tyres . Liuzzi returned to the standard version of F111  after China , with three winglets per rear brake and an engine cover with the shark fin .
