This is a fair point. So only the smallest amount cooling would make your thesis valid.
So, I move on to how the duct is routed through the leg or foot section. This interior area is clearly specified 13.3. It looks exactly like the exterior shape of most chassis in this area. Are you proposing make the chassis any bigger than is necessary to meet the interior rules?
The interior rules are a rectangle, there are no 'free' triangles in the corners.
I don't have a "thesis" and I don't care to play lawyer games with you.
If Newey is using the hump intake to supplement KERS cooling, then I would imagine that he has sized it accordingly, wouldn't you?
Send me the direct link to the exact page covering the section of 13.3 you are referring to if you want me to look at it.
The interior of the chassis is a rectangle in cross-section. The driver's butt, and therefore his seat, is rounded in cross-section (I know, I have used many of them and still have one of mine). If you place a rounded item into a rectangular one, you will have, at the very least, two triangles of space left in the bottom, on either side of the seat.
