Toro’s Rule Out Using F-Duct System

Scuderia Toro Rosso have ruled out using an F-Duct system on their car, stating that it is too expensive for the potential gain.

The small junior Red Bull team is going it alone from their parent team this season with their own car design and development programme based at their headquarters in Faenza Italy.  They say that they have other aerodynamic developments to add to the car which will provide a greater benefit for the same cost.

“That’s because if I have ten euros in my pocket and I’m hungry, I buy two sandwiches with it instead of three grams of caviar,” Ascanelli told Autosprint

“Maybe we’d be able to find some advantages after five months of development, but in that same time span we can improve even more by developing other parts of the car.

“That kind of system is no good for those who, like us, began to get the wind tunnel to work properly only in November.”
