Ferrari F14 T - front brake cooling, part two 06 July 2014

With the main brake duct shield removed we can see a separate cooling duct (red arrows). Efficient brake cooling means taking in as much cold airflow as possible through the main brake duct inlet (centre of picture) and letting it swirl around the disc to take away excess heat. The internal flow needs to be managed and this separate duct sets up the airflow direction, which in turn helps the airflow that is cooling the disc.
