McLaren MP4-22 - cooling fin detail 07 September 2007

The removal of the front-wing's upper profile at Monza has meant a small change for the cooling fins placed in front of the cockpit on either side of the McLaren chassis (red arrow). They are now at a lower point (inset circle shows previous placing) and a few centimetres back from their original position, hence closer to the sidepod inlets. They are also curved slightly backwards to improve the quality of the airflow to the radiator inlets, thereby compensating for the absence of the front wing's upper profile.
