Ferrari F10 - revised F-duct control (a)

Ferrari have revised the layout of their F-duct system for Turkey, in particular the mechanism by which the driver controls it. In Barcelona the driver was closing the hole using the back of his left hand (inset), a manoeuvre that was not very comfortable for Alonso, and even less so for Massa, who has his steering wheel positioned further forward and hence actually had to take his hand off the wheel. In Istanbul, the hole is now closed with the driver's left leg and here you can see the pipe inside the chassis, very similar to the McLaren's.
