The Brawn diffuser seems even more efficient than the Toyota & the Ferrari diffuser is similar to McLarens.

Hope that helps.

Thank you for the response. But I could not see the images so I did some digging and think I have a grasp on the difference!

Kind of funny on a side note Hamilton & Kovalainen fastest in first practice with interim diffusers. How long will Brawn's reign last once the others convert and catch up.
