Alonso getting all F-Duct'd

Commenting on new aero developments Ferrari will bring to China this week end, Fernando Alonso said they "will be very useful" on the long straight of the Shanghai circuit raising speculations that Ferrari will be the second team to copy Mclaren's clever blow wing. Sauber tested a version in Australia but did not use it in the race.

It will be interesting to see if Ferrari make it work as one would imagine the system has to be integrated with the rest of the car's aerodynamics and represents quite an effort in terms of manufacturing effort for an away race. LaSexta reports that only Alonso will get the new bits to try, if they work and he uses them in the race there will be one unhappy Brazilian in the paddock.

  1. As a fan of the Scuderia, this is definitely great news. There's also rumors of Bobby K replacing Massa. What do you think about that?

  2. I think talk of Massa's replacement is way premature.

  3. Every time I read a drivers name followed by the f'duct my mind always reads "fu%%ed"

    Like the title of your post initially read "Alonso getting all fu%%ed"


  4. I think Massa is getting a new chassis because his old chassis had some issues. It's interesting that Alonso will get to test the F-duct thing as well, but that may be a "Friday" test, only.

    The cold whether with rain will be another issue entirely. It could shake positions up some for the grid.
