I'd be amazed if they'd get away with a duct through the endplate like that.
The rules state:
The front wing endplate is defined as the bodywork created by the union of two volumes.
The first such volume:
e. Must fully enclose a minimum of 95% of the virtual endplate surface.
f. Over its forward-most 150mm, measured in the longitudinal direction, must in no
part be distant more than 10mm from the virtual endplate surface, while over the
rest of its volume must in no part be more than 6mm distant from the virtual
g. Is a single volume which contains no apertures and any intersection with any lateral
or horizontal plane may only produce a single closed section.
The second such volume:
h. Must have no part which is distant more than 30mm from the virtual endplate surface
towards the car centre plane. Any part inboard of the virtual endplate surface must
lie in its entirety between 75mm and 85mm above the reference plane.
i. Lies in its entirety between 75mm and 110mm from the reference plane.
j. Is a single volume which contains no apertures or slots.
k. When viewed from below, has a boundary which does not contain any external local
concave radius of curvature smaller than 200mm.
Once the two volumes have been defined, a fillet radius of up to 5mm will be permitted
where they intersect. Any cross section of the unified volume with a lateral vertical plane
should contain only a single closed section.
Note that apertures are expressly forbidden.
