Ferrari 248 F1 - air vents 07 May 2006

Along with the winglet/chimneys seen in Saturday's European update, these triangular air vents form another definitive part of Ferrari's latest aero package. Well hidden by the winglet/chimney combination, they dramatically improve hot-air extraction from the sidepods, allowing the engineers to lower the rear section of the car, including the exhaust. The resulting enhancement in overall aero efficiency has been shown in Ferrari's highly improved form in the last two races.
