Decent? I think its more than decent considering the SF21 is not a low drag design.codetower wrote: ↑Thu Dec 09, 2021 12:10 amThe Ferraris have some decent speed, it seems. Even the Alfas posted some eye opening speeds this past weekend. It seems to me that the Ferrari PU is not as bad as we've thought. Looks like the issues lie with the SF21 itself, not the PU. With the new ES, aside from better energy recovery, Ferrari (The Alfas or the Haas' haven't gotten the new hybrid elements) have been able to run more downforce and tweak a few things so it helps with overall performance, but looks like the issues are more in the aero, chassis, tyre management, etc. Am I missing something, or are we really not that far behind in the PU?
The PU hasn't been bad all season and is close if not on par with Honda after the ERS update(the ICE side is where its lacking to Honda and Merc).
Everything else is why the car isn't as quick as Merc/RB.
