Curious how Cosworth has their V12's 6 exhaust headers on each bank, grouped.

Cylinders 1-3-5 & 2-4-6 feed their individual pipes into a pair of collectors.

Unusual, since for packaging convenience, 1-2-3 & 4-5-6 is a typical set-up,
or if, when space allows, an equal-length triple grouping of 1-6, 2-4, 3-5.

Seems the Cosworth team has sought to more closely-group the firing impulses,
but in a way which allows a consecutive group-pulse from each tri-collector...

Presumably after the suction point, the diffuser angle can no longer exceed the standard critical angle?

It doesn’t need to as the diffuser fills the space, it can be horizontal. It becomes all about the volume of the diffuser space.

After watching I was left with two questions...

1) What effect would running the fan backwards be?
Would it be beneficial for drag reduction?

2) How exactly are they making this happen on F1 cars (as the diffusers on most appear to be maximising the legal space).
I can think of a few ways, but not sure how legal any of them would be!!
Common sense is not as common as stupidity, but it is better to be uninformed than to be mid-informed...

Does anyone have pictures of the actual diffuser? I'm assuming it's like one or two perforated sections similar to the McLaren F1.
