Toro Rosso STR9 – nose vanes addition in Jerez


Toro Rosso STR9 nose vanes Jerez test January 2014

 

  STR9 lacked any nose vanes on its launch version (studio images), but in Jerez  a pair of  splitted vanes added just below the suspension wishbones . Nose vanes are common in Formula 1 for more than a decade now, pioneered by Jordan team which preferred to abandon the classic bargeboards in favor of nose hanging skirts. Nowadays multi sectioned vanes consist of two or even three elements and play a significant role on aero efficiency .
