They are the release latches for the boot lid.
There are 4 of them in total.
SInce they make every effort to same weight on a race car, the boot lid hinge mechanism is removed and replaced with some simple slot latches. :)

It looks practical to me. You could dismount it & use it for a coffee table.

I wouldn't be surprised, they do have form for such behaviour. I remember the 1999 Mercedes CLR LeMans cars lifting off, clearing the barriers and taking to the trees a few years back due to a "miscalculation" in the aero package.

After one flipped over in practice, they rebuilt it and added more front downforce to the cars, That car flipped over again in the saturday morning warm up. The other two cars were still allowed to start by the Mercedes team manager, with instructions to hopefully prevent further incidents. Then this happened:

The final car was immediately withdrawn from the race and the design was consigned to the scrapheap and never raced again.

downforce is a critical part of any successful GT car. AWD overcomplicates the vehicle, adds excessive weight, and cannot come close to the benefits of a good aero package.,
