      I agree that it's the defroster vent.

            If that's a diffuser, it's dragging on the ground. And besides, it extends beyond the width of the car, easily visible to the right. It's a reflection, nothing more.

                Nope I’d say that’s the F-150’s vents

                  Rear diffuser’s generate downforce without much drag. Race car underbody’s are complex engineering. The need to find the point of balance in the aero loading is critical.

                        That is no difuser. That's the air vent from the F-150
