Ferrari F14 T - oil tank repositioning, part two 27 July 2014

These drawings show cross sections of the gearbox in Ferrari's current F14 T (top) and last year's F138 (bottom). This year's box is significantly longer and the yellow square highlights the area in which the team have housed the oil tank, inside the gearbox casing - something not seen in Formula One racing since 1998. Previously the tank was always located between the engine and chassis, minimising the necessary pipework and placing it closer to the car's centre of gravity.
