Looking at F1 test pics I found something "strange" on a RBR
I think it is a device to measure aerodynamic downforce but a friend of mine with some racing experience was not so sure.

Looks like a good way to get some flex-wing testing to correlate to modeling maybe? They ran the same thing at the beginning of the year also. And to note they were the only team that did.
I wouldn't be surprised if more teams will run something similar by the first test next season, especially seeing how hard of a time Ferrari was at trying out the flex-wing last couple of races...
Finished @ UofT Racing
McLaren tested a similar system in the winter tests 2011:
Scarab's F1 blog has a pretty good writeup on how it might work:
