The Alpine this year has gone for a very interesting airbox solution as its much wider and bulkier than the rest of the competition. If I remember correctly, they wanted to slim down the side pods to get more airflow on the floor so some of the radiators usually mounted in the side pods were moved up top by the air box, hence the bulkiness.

I cant help to think that this may have played a role in them falling down the pecking order. Aside from moving the center of gravity higher, I imagine directing airflow to the rear spoiler has become more of a challenge.
