HRT F110 – Airbox area details


 

           Mc laren in 1998 was the first team to remove bodywork from the area located  under the airbox inlet and behind the driver’s helmet so as to reduce frontal surface and hence drag . Since then the morphology of this crucial area evolved a lot and many different paterns of the Mc Laren’s original idea are  seen .  The two pillars in HRT case are for strenghtening the structure and to meet FIA minimum width rules in this area . The airbox inlet itself has a circular shape and feeds  engine’s intake port  with high pressure air .
