The 2015/16 Ferrari (and by extension the VF16) are James Allison cars, he's the one behind the 2012/13 Lotuses before he moved to Ferrari.
Basically James Allison didn't get his hands of the SF-15T early enough to change from the pull rod front suspension that Ferrari's been using for a few years back, but for 2016 he went to push rod suspension more similar to what he'd used on the Lotus cars so that's what is on the SF-16H and the VF-16.
