Why doesn't car has floor slot near sidepod area like every other team on grid?
The team also using same sidepod airflow conditioner for entire season.
No new cooling package.
Basically no development in sidepod area for entire season.
That shows the gain in slimmer sidepodes won't compensate for the reliability. SFI is known for reliable and stable car, I think by going with more conservative cooling package they are ensuring less(almost zero) engine or engine parts failure.
Remember how costly Mercedes engines are..
