Thank you so much Robin and Jens!robunos said:Blackkite, I think you're right about the cooling air exit, and I've just found this, from Putnam's 'McDonnell Douglas' Volume 1, page 363;
"The laminar-flow wing with double slotted flaps housed the fuel tanks and the oil and coolant radiators which were fitted with ground cooling fans."
Later, on page 363-4, it says this; "...limited efficiency of the cooling ducts. Solutions...were found relatively quickly..."
I think these fans would have to have been driven electrically, and not directly off the engines.
Don't feel so sad Jens. Never mind. F1 car has no fan.
