Interested in particular by:
- no top opening for the sidepod cooling inlet
- big shark fin, meaning less packaging space taken up by components (might allude to longer car)
- the stacked waste gates
These all hint at things Ferrari have done on the engine side - seems like they may have reduced cooling demands and very interesting to understand what the effect of the stackedwastegates is; the testing by Ferrari last year shows a significant and long lead development path, so unlikely to be trivial. Some kind of exhaust blowing effect you’d imagine, perhaps linked to the size and shape of the new rear wing.
Wasnt the top opening on the Ferrari supposed to improve airflow over the sidepods and reduce drag or lift or suck a boundary layer?
Maybe. My understanding is that you would have the minimum cooling inlets possible and that the placement of the top exit was to a. Reduce the frontal area b. Direct ‘cleaner’ air to the radiator.
But you may also be right, I don’t know.
