No I don't believe so, not from any pictures that have been taken today. Here's the engine cover with the RB style cooling outlet seen in China but never raced or even used in practice to the best of my knowledge.Mr.G wrote:Is it me or we can see a quite big rear center cooling outlet (half of it).
Sorry if this has come up before but Ferrari have been playing with the RBR style cooling outlet for a while, they even brought it to Monaco last year but didn't race it if I remember correctly?f1316 wrote:So, from that article I would infer that the elusive China engine cover with cooling outlet may be making a return. From what I can understand from the article, there seems to be a lot of thought going into cooling for Monaco, and it seems to imply (if my understanding is correct) that the RBR style central hot air exit is because of this.
But surely this would also require a major change of radiator layout to accomodate a whole new cooling approach? In which case, you would imagine this is not simply a Monaco measure, but a more long-term view to improve general airflow.
Yes, it's probably this cover, when I saw the new pictures it was quite obvious.ing wrote:Looks deceiving, but I think you are seeing this:Mr.G wrote:Is it me or we can see a quite big rear center cooling outlet (half of it).

When I thought of that I based it off my memories of seeing broken upright connections upon hitting the barriers and similar brushes with immovable objects. So my thoughts laid on the fact that the arms themselves are quite strong as it is. But thanks for the added pov.flyboy2160 wrote:if the composite suspension members are hollow as shown in this most excellent thread viewtopic.php?f=6&t=11557#p295751, then the buckling strength could be increased by thickening the walls by adding plies inside the members. this is not the most efficient way to increase the section properties against buckling. but it leaves alone both the attach geometry at the ends that has to mate to other parts and the external airflow shape.mx_tifoso wrote:...but is wondering how the suspension is technically strengthened? My guess is changing (strengthening) the parts where buckling or snapping is most likely to occur, mainly around the uprights. But yet leaving the dimensions of the arms and rods alone.
if you strengthened just the ends of the members near the attach points, the thinner walled center sections could still buckle.
I have absolutely no clue how we missed it mate. I saw it and then went back and it was right there. Doh!amouzouris wrote:oh man...we really missed that....it looks so obvious now...
But do the regulations specify a certain diameter for the exhaust pipe? (I have no idea.)Gridlock wrote:The last 10cm is a straight circular pipe with a 90deg straight flat cut at the end.
