Those large aerials are for transmitting telematry to and from the car. In racing the rules restrict any Pit to Car computer communication but during testing they can transmit changes to the car telematry from the pit wall. Those aerials are to allow the car to recieve the information, and due to the ban on "to car interface" the aerials must be removed during racing. There for the car during race scenarios can only send information, it can not recieve it. But to answer the question they are just telematry aerials for pit to car computer communication.

I just hope all the fans realize that in the case of Shumi Rosberg the timing can not be compaired due to the timing in which they both went out. The temperature went up to 13c for Shumi the question is what did it end at for Rosberg? Does anybody know? :?
