Ferrari F2008 - reduced cooling vents 10 May 2008

For this year the Turkish Grand Prix has moved from August to May and the lower temperatures mean teams can afford to reduce the number of cooling vent slits on their cars' sidepods. In the case of Ferrari, the F2008 sports only half the number of upper vents it would in high-temperature configuration (blue arrow indicates where the additional slits would be). This change slightly improves the car's aerodynamcic efficiency, especially on Istanbul Park's long straights.
