    Maybe this is old news, but during quali there was a great shot of Massa's cockpit and steering wheel. For the first time I noticed a small device which was an Exair Air Amplifier suspended from up above somewhere. There was another shot where FM seemed to have it in hand. Went online and came up with:

    Found it very interesting. Anyone know anything more about it? Is it used to for blowing, exhausting or both?

    I noticed these as well. I'm thinking that they are to keep the drivers cool while they are waiting to head out.

    It blows air into the faces of KR and FM so it makes them think they're going fast when they are driving the F60....
