I recall RB doing the samewith the RB7, it was only in the last testing session their blown exhaust was fitted, giving them an obvious advantage that couldn't be copied by other teams in time for the first race.

I do hope it is not the same again this year, but Adrian Newy has probably nailed it again this season

WoW not again, just when i thought McLaren will be close to RBR. just hope the rest of the teams respond so we can avoid a silly predictable dominant season like 2011

he is a master of aero, but when Byrne was designing Ferrari's Newey was winning nothing...
Anyway, on subject, I'm getting fed up of all this FIA grey areas in the rules.
Forget exhaust position, angles etc etc, just have them exit behind the rear diffuser, simply no argument for anything, exit facing backwards behind the car, no amount of ducts or going against the spirit of the rules will come into play.
The only good thing, I can't see many people signing on to Sky with Red Bull and Vettel dominating again.

I thought the Blown Diffuser is banned? Now it's legal to use all kinds of extra ducts to redirect the exhaust gas to the diffuser again? C'mon FIA, do your homework!
