Force India introduces F-Ducts for Turkish Grand Prix

Istanbul: Continuing its experiment with updates, Force India will run its own F-duct system, which gives the driver speed advantage on long straights, in this weekend`s Turkish Grand Prix.

"We will be using our own version of the F-duct in practice, it`s called the SRW or switchable rear wing," a Force India official said.

With this move, Force India joins several of its competitors who are toying with the system pioneered by McLaren.
The SRW is a device which allows the driver manually alter the airflow over the rear wing and thus gain a speed advantage on long straights.

Ferrari is already working on it, while Red Bull Racing is also expected to unveil F-Duct tomorrow.
Some teams in the past tried flexible wings before those were banned by FIA.
