    Does anybody knows what happened to Ferrari vaccum?

    In the pits the ferrari used this vaccum to clean the side duct from gravol and so on.

    Why dont they use them anymore?

    I would guess they bring it out on an as-needed basis. When the cars are running up front in clean air, the radiators stay pretty clean. When Michael decides to spend the weekend in the gravel, running around mid-pack to perhaps rekindle some long-ago memories of competition, they get filled up with gravel, grass and rubber.

    Ferrari changed the angle of the radiators the last 2 years and as a result dirt and klag falls to the bottom of the duct thru vibration they may also have drain holes to allow the dirt and such to fall under the car.

    Something about the way the British use their language is just brilliant.
