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.

Spoon RW and fat hot air exits(last year Ferrari overcooled the engines in Melbourne, they wouldn't make the same mistake twice would they?)

Overcooled meant they had too many openings on the car and that had a negative effect on aerodynamic performance. More opening slots less aerodynamic performance.

I tried this and I had understeer, I tried that and I had oversteer, at the end of the corner I just run out of talent

Yep, overcooled. According to rumours, last year ferrari had overcooled the engine and had to run it at lower level

They run the engines very hot, so I assume they design it to be within some very specific tolerances of temperature.

Are you sure it’s the same? Upon first viewing this ‘new’ wing appears to me like a significant step towards loading up the outboard section (I.e. much more Mercedes/Red Bull style).

Those red panels behind it are playing visual games with the wing profile.

It's been like that since test day 1, they moved all the flaps back as much as possible when you look at the front wing top-down, not sure to what effect. It's had an impact on how the wing looks for sure, flaps don't look as smooth as the 2019 spec (they also ran the 2019 spec but for 1 day if I'm not mistaken). Outwash concept still maintained

That sounds like an increase in chord length which means they're looking to add front downforce.

Ferrari factory closed for 2 weeks now (minimum), so no development on the car or PU. This will be a big hit for them if the other teams continue to run.

Well they can still work remotely. Ofc they can't manufacture anything, but they can do some work at home

I think the last thing that is priority now for Italian based teams is their 2020 f1 cars...
Life goes on but everything goes into different perspective since the championship won't start before May or June...
