Ferrari SF-24

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter do not belong here.

Is there any downsides to this? If true of course

I'm not sure what they wanted to say, but the car had a bit higher overall DF level in Bahrain than Jeddah and Melbourne, as observed by single-piece beam wing used together with lower angle on the front wing. Two things they may have meant that are fairly accurate:

- car had good balance (DF level front/back) even with different wing levels or
- car has a lot of floor downforce and thus wing level is becoming less dominant in % of overall DF (this was quite well observed on RB19 last year, quite often opting to use low-level wing when other teams couldn't fathom it)

Either way, both very positive
Yeah the article wanted to underline that Ferrari didn't have to change the rear wings to adapt to the different track layouts, but only played with beam wings like RB last year.

Does anyone have more info on the SF-24 xTreme version which is in wind tunnel right now ? It seems Ferrari already evaluated underbite vs overbite sidepods inlets.

Thanks for clarification :D

What you wrote is the latest info we have and Formu1a.uno team really seems to have valid info. Apparently, Imola upgrade was signed off only a few days ago to maximise the development time before manufacture. It makes sense Ferrari can't make it work with RB20-style side inlets, they'd be too big on Ferrari and would take away too much air volume from undercut area.
And they call it a stall. A STALL!

Posting this article here as well.
In Japan, what will be an updated fairing of the upper triangle of the rear suspension will be previewed. A fine modification, purely for aerodynamic purposes, like the small wing profile that appeared on the SF-24 in Melbourne, which will serve to manage the flow between the inside of the wheel and the bodywork in a different way, in a very important area of ​​these new generation single-seaters

Same old wing.
Will they go for double beam wing in Suzuka?
Doesn't seem like a good option to bet on DRS effectiveness at a track with one zone, but maybe the drag reduction pays for itself.

Am I following this correctly, in that the SF-24 has used the same rear wing on all 3 previous races and now again?

That's quite remarkable considering how different each track is.

I believe that is the case. Only difference is that they are using a double beam wing here.

Yes they did use it and will use the same rear wing again in Japan. They changed beam wing specs, but it was quite clear they made a mistake not to use smaller rear wing in Jeddah after Q, where they lost 5 tenths on straights to RB. They were also losing 4-5 tenths on straights compared to RB in the race, every lap. Better tyre deg was never going to offset this.

We will also likely see the same rear wing in China and I honestly hope they will finally use low drag wing in Miami.
And they call it a stall. A STALL!

From these photos it doesn't look like there are any updates on the suspension arms, let's wait for better photos anyway #Techf1 #Ferrari #JapaneseGP

Interesting, but is this new? I’m still unclear on that.
