Ferrari F2006 preview - rear section with venting gills 30 November 2005

This artist's impression of Ferrari's 2006 machine features sidepods (4) much narrower at the rear than the F2005's, creating an advanced 'coke-bottle' section. They are also much lower, thanks to smaller radiators. The Renault R25-style venting gills (5) provide maximum cooling efficiency with minimal airflow disruption. New rear suspension geometry (6) will work better with Bridgestone tyres, reducing the rear-end waywardness of F2005.
