Ferrari SF1000

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.

My uninformed observation watching the live coverage is that the Ferrari looks great on track. Smooth and planted. But that stands to reason if they’re at 7 tenths, so is totally meaningless. Here’s hoping though
FWIW i also watched about 20 minutes yesterday when Chuck was on track, and in all that time he did not once open his DRS. Another reason why the variability in the set uip of these cars just makes lap time comparison pointless.

It makes sense for Ferrari to focus on race trim given that they had a pretty decent qualy car last year.

You mean the one every other team is kind of converging to?
They're not. It was established last year that while the direction Ferrari went in was the most obvious solution to the regulations, they went down a blind alley because they couldn't get the wing to generate as much downforce as that of other teams.

Ferrari, Alfa, Williams, Alpha Tauri, McLaren and Haas must be screwed then. RB, RP and Merc are somewhere in the middle. Only Renault has a proper outboard loaded FW as of right now.

Finishing races is important, but racing is more important.

not the best view of this car :|

None of the cars from this hybrid era are good looking! We haven't seen a really good looking F1 car in a very long time, actually.

I do think the darker red paint this year is a step in the right direction, much better than the orange of the last few years, but I wish they would get rid of the flat or matte finish. Looks horrible.

I don’t know if anyone else noticed but Leclerc was 14kph down on Rai in the speedtrap (and about 8kph down on Bottas), which again shows how they’re running the engine very conservatively.

I noticed them hovering around 290kph down the main straight during Vettel's earlier runs in the afternoon, until his run on the C5(?) in the afternoon which he hit 305kph if I recall correctly. Definitely seemed like they were running lower power settings in the afternoon, at least from my armchair.

that is a beautiful shot of in this angle a beautiful car. would be even better with a 'sharper' nose (ala RS20). But great shot and i like the redness here.
Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.
