Ferrari SF-24

I have the feeling that the shape of sidepods below air entrance is more "vertical" than the one on RB and McLaren. Am I wrong?

Can't see the chassis duct outlet anymore, maybe it's now part of the main sidepod cooling duct
There appears two exit (visible on RHS flank) with front most near to rear halo mount, then rear most just in front of Santander logo on that flank.

Both rearward facing in entirety, so not visible in front aspect view.

Looks a fairly in depth "shuffle" of internal flow etc from before to accompany revised entry provision of sidepod intakes.

Engine cover seems different especially at the back. There seems to be some inlet/opening at the r of Santander logo.

Good spot!
Reminds me of the W15 initial launch renders.

A cooling outlet?

At first it looked like only the sidepod inlet was changed, but then it became clear sidepod bodywork is new as well. We also have new rear wing flap tip (as suggested by Formu1a Uno team), engine cover and cooling outlet redesign.

As far as I can tell, the floor is old/launch spec, absolutely no surface looks different. Most likely will be fitted later today, like they did with pre-Austria comparative tests during Filming Day 2 last year.

Novelties:
- fairly conventional and extended inlet, slightly elongated top lip, seemingly of the same size as before
- new mirror vane design
- new Halo winglet design, no more S duct outlet in the rear
- bigger and more squared sidepod shape (possibly now chasing some actual local suction load, ie downforce)
- engine cover and cooling outlet look like a fairly big change, will be interesting to see how this area will be adapted from track to track
- rear wing flap tip redesign, in line with sharp flat edge that RB introduced

Not bad, but definitely not an EVO/B car, just a natural update evolution :)

And they call it a stall. A STALL!

The vertical s-duct inlet and the sidepod inlet appear to create a single opening like alpine launch spec (I haven’t bothered to stay up to date with their car so not sure if that’s changed) and Mercedes.
