Ferrari open up engine cover

By on

Ferrari, widely known for its engine with high cooling requirements, have adapted the engine cover at Monaco to be able to cope with the high temperatures. In the streets of the city, top speeds and the average speed over the GP are lowest over all Grand Prix. As a result, there is a risk of overheating the engine. The image indicates that the Scuderia really have shark gills all over the sidepod's upper sides. The gills aside of the engine and on the sidepod top are usual, although there have now been gills added on the inside of the former chimneys. Such elaborate cooling system makes you think of the succesful Renault R25, the last Championship winning car with a V10 engine.
