Yes, I can only assume they are achieving higher air intake some how.

Ferrari have very short side pods due to their radiator layout. It has freed up a lot of space at the rear of the car.

Can someone please explain where the "exhaust/outlet" for the radiator inlet is? Is this airflow channelled/used in away by the diffuser or rear wing?

There's a lot of chat about engine exhaust, but not much on radiator "exhaust".

So, given that the sidepods are basically about housing radiators, how come we're seeing such a change from last year, and such a difference between the teams? They all have virtually the same job to do as eachother, and as last year.

Sauber said that after Sergio had his accident at Monaco they looked at the car and they started looking to make the side pods as compact as he made them against the crash barriers. .

Small sidepods seemed to start with the Brawn of 2009; those really were so slim and small. A lot to do with radiator size, location and of course managing airflow into the opening.
Good pics of topic, OP.
