Yes, so that's a 4 element outer section, how long has it been like that?

Exhaust update

Oval opening to the C31

Eventually the Sauber did not use in qualifying and in the race. The exit in this area has increased discharges to improve evacuation of heat from radiators & have opted for a large oval opening at the end of the opening

Agreed. Matt Morris said before the green flag that 90% of the Barcelona updates were on the car today. Impressive indeed.
