Thinner nose this year- indicative of something we may expect to see from the Ferrari works team?

Damn, they've really gone down the narrow nose concept. and is it just me or does that front wing looks pretty similar to the Mclaren?

Anyway, car looks good and fast.

no, i wouldnt think so, if anything it means that they're expecting the engine not to be super powerful. Because the narrow nose works best at lower speeds, whilst the large nose works best at high speeds, and is usually prone to stalling at lower speeds...

Given Alfa used tokens to do the new nose - and Ferrari are using theirs at the rear - I suspect not, unless Ferrari’s existing crash structure would already fit these kinds of aero pieces/shape (ie Ferrari can’t change what’s underneath without using tokens).

But the coke bottle and engine packaging on the Alfa looks much tighter this year and that does bode well for Ferrari imo.

Isn't Alfa using the same updated gearbox and suspension of Ferrari? If so they have used their tokens in that area like Ferrari.
I'm still learning English so please excuse me if my English is not good enough and feel free to correct me via PM if you want.

No, one of the two guys even said that they used both their tokens on the front and that the gearbox is the same

So Alfa is going to use last year Ferrari gearbox and internal rear suspension. Did I understand correctly?

Nose is quite unique, looks like the cape is starting already from the tip
