Sauber C33 Ferrari

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.

Turned down the chance to meet Vettel at Silverstone in 2007. He was a test driver at the time and I didn't think it was worth queuing!! 🤦🏻‍♂️

you look at this small air intake as it is placed in the F14-T perhaps for cooling the gear box or something similar to the power unit ferrari

i mentioned that before, some think it may be to cool turbo, i personally think it's to direct air to the exhaust in addition to blow the monkeyseat. i think the slotted intake below the airbox intake is meant for turbo and electrical equipment cooling purposes.

we're gonna need some more shots of the sauber to actually be able to do a more proper analysis, especially from the back.

It's most certainly for cooling. It's highly unlikely they would be taking air from that location and ducting it to "blow the monkey seat".

I don't get this. The McLaren looked the same 6 years straight, but other teams must change livery every year.

I love this livery on the Sauber. It looks awesome. I hope it becomes as recognizable as the Marlboro/McLaren of yesteryear.

They're not the same type. Sauber is inlet Ferrari looks more like outlet.

It's an inlet. The way it's built it will take a fair amount of air in.

Yes but only on Sauber, look at this picture, it doesn't look like inlet on Ferrari, more like outlet.

I think Ferrari also has air vents is not output
looks good seems the air flow above and is captured is not ejected, Watch in photo (b) as the blade is at the center

I think that now they try not to show everything.
Ferrari in previous years had an air outlet, so below 'maybe they have hidden this particular

Sauber's is a small inlet; likely to cool small stuff like electronics.

Ferrari's is a complex outlet which probably has an aero function too.

Zioture, air can't magically bend 180 degrees. the 2 aren't comparable and have a different function. Ferrari might or might not (probably not, because the sauber inlet looks to be part of the homologated roll hoop) add the same inlet, but that's guessing and hoping. Just judging from the launch pictures, there's a clear difference.

It's probably the complex structure of the Ferrari outlets that is confusing you. They are very well tuck away in bodywork.
