Fully undercut sidepods 

Here is something more conventional than what I’ve posted before.

Fully undercut sidepods. Radiators positioned horizontally on the bottom of sidepod (if possible slightly bended). Air enters sidpod conventionally. Air leaves sidepods directly trough radiator below the sidepod. Stream below the sidepods generates slight decrease in pressure due to shape of sidepod enabling easier “exhaust” from the sidepod. No chimneys, no gills.

Advantages – lowered center of gravity, less disturbance of air flowing on top of the car towards the rear wing, increased downforce because sidpods are shaped even more like inverted aeronautical wing than nowadays.

Disadvantages… Well I’ll leave it up to you guys.
