Red Bull RB4 Renault

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

Red Bull RB4 Renault

Post

Again back to the gearbox oil cooler.

Out of the Red Bull Racing Owners Workshop Manual:
Gearbox lubrication
...and pumped through a sidepod-mounted oil cooler...
But on that image, you could see the air flowing through the airbox to that inlet over the engine air feeding. Is that example in the RB manual maybe a RB4? They write quite a lot things about RB4.

The Haynes published Owners' Workshop Manual is all about the RB4 and not much to learn for RB5-6. Nevertheless a great treat for addicts.

In the Haynes Manual, they say, that the air intake over the airbox is for the hydraulic liquid. Is it possible, that there are two radiators (gearbox oil & hydraulic liquid) in that inlet?
