Ferrari F2006 preview - sidepods & turning vanes 30 November 2005

This artist's impression of Ferrari's 2006 machine features sidepods much narrower in their lower front section (3), making the air intakes smaller and slightly more vertical, not unlike those on the McLaren MP4-20. The overall dimensions of the sidepods will be less going rearwards thanks to smaller radiators. A further similarity to the McLaren is related to the complex series of bargeboards and fins (red arrows), which help to manage the airflow underneath the car. This feature will certainly be refined over the 2005 version, but the basic concept will remain unchanged.
