Ferrari F2005 - winglet and chimney configuration 20 August 2005

With the exception of Hungary with its exceptionally high air temperatures, this almost definitive Ferrari configuration has been unchanged in recent races, with the closed chimneys serving not as cooling devices, but as splitters, acting in conjunction with the winglets to control airflow over the rear of the car. For Turkey, the main profile of the winglet partially crosses the chimney. In addition, all bodywork has gone on something of a diet to reduce surface area - in particular the outer side of the vertical fences inside the rear wheels and the rearmost section of the engine cover, over the suspension elements.
