Exhaust Diffusers F1 Aerodynamics

The aerodynamics of the car is one of the most important aspects that goes into an F1 cars design. We have heard a lot of talk recently (this 2010 F1 Season), about the F-Duct, that is possibly banned for 2011. (Which is a crying shame for F1 design with a view to putting more control of the car into the drivers hands, (or left knee in the best and safest version of the F-Duct), with respect to creating less predictable races!

However, there is another valuable piece of aerodynamic technology that has not had much mention, and that is Exhaust Diffusers. They cause a similar effect of disrupting the air-flow, to create more or less drag, depending on car speed, to gain better handling and control.

Air-Flow Exhaust Diffusers.
The only team currently using the exhaust diffuser system to disrupt air-flow around the rear wheels, is RED BULL. It is reported that WILLIAMS are soon to adopt this. It must be working, because we are now at race 7 of the 2010 season, as I write this article and RED BULL have had 7 pole positions!
