Ferrari F2008 - side protection 07 January 2008

The side protection around the driver's helmet (black arrows) is 15mm higher than on the F2007. This is partly because of new safety rules but is also the result of the chassis' slightly lower front section. The higher protection doesn't limit the driver's rear visibility since, as on the F2007, the rear-view mirrors are placed on the outermost edge of the sidepods.
