Ferrari F138 - chassis hole comparison 17 March 2013

Arguably one of the most relevant technical stories in Melbourne was Ferrari's choice not to use the inlet in the F138's nose and chassis (see main drawing). The Australian track is not considered to be as aerodynamically demanding as other circuits. The inlet (see inset) they could have used is fairly large and located in the lower section of the chassis.
