Ferrari F2005 - cooling chimneys 02 April 2005

Another obvious change on the F2005 for Bahrain is the chimneys on top of the sidepods. These have replaced the tiny vertical fins seen on the launch car. Of course, the main function of these is to improve the car's cooling capabilities in the desert heat, but they also have an aerodynamic function, diverting airflow and acting in conjunction with the small winglets that have been added behind them, in a similar fashion to on the old (F2004 M) car.
