Sutil to experiment f-duct for first time in Canadian GP

Having struggled from a dissimilar lack of practice time in Turkish GP, owing to both technical problems and a Friday crash at Turn 8, Sutil chosen not to use the f-duct system as team-mate Liuzzi test with the device for the first time. But, the German remains positive over the part and hopes to put it into practice this weekend.

Colloquially known as an ‘f-duct’, or SRW (Switchable Rear Wing) by Force India, the part allocate drivers to manually control the amount of airflow which their car’s rear wing receives, then being able to lessen down-force levels on straights and increase top speeds at will.

“The SRW was a development item in Turkey and we didn’t use it on my car in qualifying or the race, as we didn’t get enough information on it after the various issues we had in practice,” Sutil give details. “It’s a really good system for me, as I can use it without taking my hands off the steering wheel, and once we introduce it long-term it will be very easy to use.

“We saw on Tonio’s car that it gave a big improvement, so if we can use it on my car it will be a real step forward. We will test it some more in Canada and hopefully get some good data together.”
