NOSE CONE CAMERA WINGLETS
The winglets on either side of the nose cone are placed higher and relatively away from the tip of the nose . Τhey may have a camera fitted inside them .
1.The small bargeboard is closer in its bottom to the main body of the car . This generates a sort of Venturi effect to increase the velocity of the air flow entering between the small bargeboard and the main body of the car .
2.Triangular fin which helps splitting the airflow passing close to the sidepods. This cuts the vortices around the sidepod entrance, allowing more air to enter, hence improving the car's cooling capabilities
3.This horizontal element create a better seal between the bottom of the car and the ground, diverting airflow underneath the car more efficiently
Mirrors are placed close to the cockpit zone. Probably their innovative mounting’s shape offer a small aero gain , especially crucial for the new winglet-less 2009 F1 cars . I assume that they split the airflow into 2 parts , one portion above the sidepod and another one towards the sidepod inlet improving the car’s cooling capabilities .
BGP001 exhausts extended 10cm out of the holes in the engine cover something that has been corrected for the Malaysian GP . Probably this configuration did not offer aero gain but helped to better handle cooling issues . Ferrari F60 during winter testing had also to modify its exhaust pipes for the same reason . Long exhausts pipes was something common for past years .
2009 regulations states “Any vertical cross section of bodywork normal to the car centre line situated in the volumes defined below must form one tangent continuous curve on its external surface. This tangent continuous curve may not contain any radius less than 75mm ” . According to the regulations, "airboxes, radiators and engine exhausts are to be considered part of the bodywork
