Ferrari 150° Italia - exhaust positioning 07 March 2011

The exhausts on the Ferrari are very low and flat (inset). They blow towards a channel (1) that exits through a thin horizontal window, which is the car's starter hole. The rules limit the size of the starter hole to a maximum surface area of 3,500mm². The centralised nature of the exhaust's positioning has forced the Italian team to add heat protection around the car's deformable rear crash structure (2).
