Tech analysis: turbulence on a Ferrari rear wing assembly (VIDEO)


During NBCSN’s second free practice session from the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix this morning, NBCSN Formula 1 analyst Steve Matchett explained how Ferrari was gathering data to evaluate turbulence in the wake for other cars.

As is often done during testing, extra material in the form of pitot tubes was added to the cars during first practice. Kimi Raikkonen’s Ferrari had the extra material on its rear wing assembly and Matchett explains the turbulence in greater detail, above.
