Whether in Formula 1™ or on models from the R.S. range, performance is invariably procured through meticulous work on aerodynamics. Built into the front bumper, the F1™-style blade is not only one of the signature features of the R.S. range.
This component has two functions, since its shape helps increase downforce on the front axle and channels airflow towards the radiator and the turbo intercooler.
At the rear, the downforce generated comes from the combined effects of the diffuser and the spoiler. The design of this component is particularly important because it has to limit drag, which has a negative impact on top speed, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
