Ferrari has joined Red Bull in opting to remove the F-duct from its car in Hungary.

Red Bull was the first to deduce that the efficiency of its conventional rear wing layout was better at the tight and twisty track, where the only significant straight is located opposite the pitlane.

On Felipe Massa's car, Ferrari experimented with both solutions during Friday practice.

"The F-duct always has advantages and disadvantages and we don't have a clear answer right now about what is best for here," Fernando Alonso said in Spanish reports.

He later acknowledged that the F10 "seems more competitive" with the F-duct not fitted in Hungary.
