Renault R28 - sidepods 05 February 2008

When compared with last year's car, the R28's new sidepods have been transformed. The vertical fins (larger red arrow) no longer support the rear-view mirrors, making for a cleaner design and better airflow management towards the rear of the car. In addition the bottom edge of the sidepod's air inlets are much higher than before (smaller red arrow) to provide the radiators with cleaner airflow and reduce the effect of turbulence generated by the front axle and suspension.
