I don't believe so but it wouldn't be advantageous. The air flow in that region doesn't have good characteristics (Reynolds number and pressure) compared to the air intake above the driver. Also, the fluid dynamics of the air intake would have to divert the flow from that position on the right around to the top of the engine, inducing more losses.
Either way, the rollover structure has to remain where it is so the air intake wouldn't reduce this height, by removing it.
So, hypothetically yes I believe they could do it, but it wouldn't be a good idea.
To shed more light on this,
refer Manchilds intuitive idea of airbox

I recall reading about changes in the design of the cooling system, but nothing indepth. Does anyone have any info on that? Exactly what were those changes?
