The WR's side pods are off set inboard relative to the outside edge of the underfloor leaving a portion of the floor exposed down the side of the car.
Note The horizontal strake above the "Spark" logo.  It acts as a valance plate masking the floor when viewed from above.
The side plate performs a rules compliance function by (as the horizontal strake) masking the car's bodywork as seen in elevation (from the side).  The regulation states that any bodywork that can be seen from the side cannot be offset inboard more than 150 mm.
