Even the VF-18’s leading brake assembly without the main brake drum attached shows this crossover pipework which internally feeds atmosphere across the surface of the assembly by the inlet and ejects it throughout the wheel face to an aerodynamic advantage. Note the teardrop-shaped holes allow heat generated under braking to flee similarly placed holes from the drum.

Changes to the bargeboards along with splitter extension had been also afoot in Belgium, with the shape and frequency of this serrations at the bargeboards footplate altered, whilst stanchion cascades were mounted atop them (white arrow). Meanwhile, two additional ducting holes were placed on the outer section of this splitter (red arrow).
