Ferrari F2005

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

Ferrari F2005

Post

Guys...have anyone sees new ferrari yet????? Can anyone point to me what are the differences? To my eyes....apart from slightly different design around the exhaust...the rest looks like f2004 M

As I can see...ferrari has returned to the exhaust outlet pre-2002..smoothly integrated in the bodywork.

A blanked-out chimney also present...like f2004..only no duct...

secondary wing also present before the main rear wing..

what else??

Well, I was under the impression that Brawn said F2004M features 95% of F2005's aero package.

There appears to be a noticable but subtle, soft longitudinal ridge that runs down the upper edge of the nose, towards the cockpit.

The surfacing on the sidepods looks to be really smooth and devoid of any type of air outlets. Secondary airbox wing resembles renaults solution from last season; appears to have a noticable downward cant. Shelf wing is a new addition, or was this introduced as a development last year? Are there clearer pics of the exhaust outlets?

What about the addition to the front wing?

The air outlets for the sidepods appear to be integrated with the exhaust outlets.

The engine and radiator exhaust thing is an interesting one. Looking at the top of their sidepods it's almost scary how simple and clean they have made it. There is absolutely nothing to further obstruct the flow to the rearwing there, apart from the chimney(?) winglets, which improve the flows there. I'm just wondering how this approach has left them on the engine cooling department, which is very important this year. Comparing to for example Renault.
But then again, this is Ferrari and I don't think anyone here thinks they don't know what they're doing. :wink: Even if Byrne has faded to a simple supervisory role in the team. And perhaps the lack of cooling is a testament to the ridicilous reliability of the ferrari engine, and the renault approach is just the necessary precaution to make up for their nagging engine reliability issues?
Who knows. 8)

Looking at the pictures i have seen (apart from the engine exhausts) the car looks like the F2004M. my thought is that they are showing off the F2005 with F2004M aero on it. but when they test they will change to a different specification.

just a thought?

Well not surprisingly my thought too, it is exactly what they did last year too, the front wing at its first race was completely different of what was presented to the press a few weeks before that.

Ferrari F2005 Nose

Post

Any idea why the nose on the F2005 appears to be rather oversize and bulbous in comparison to the likes of Renault's and McL's sleek nose?

My only guess is that they use the wider nose for a little more downforce (on top of it), while the renault and mclaren have a thin nose for better guidance to the radiators, sidepods, diffuser.
