Felipe Massa continued Ferrari’s filming activities with their new F150 at Fiorano today.
Pictures of the car in action show the new-for-2011 adjustable rear wing in its open and closed states.
These comparison pictures show the wing in its normal state (left) and opened (right).
Although the angles the pictures were taken at are not consistent the gap between the upper and lower plans when the wing is activated is clearly visible:
Drivers will be allowed to use their adjustable rear wings when they’re within one second of another car during races in 2011. Teams are able to use the wings whenever they want during testing.
You can see high-resolution versions of these pictures below.
